Recently I bought a router in order to share an ADSL connection between 2 laptops, one of which is running Mandrake 8.2. I am a complete newbie. I heard that I have to do the following:

Plug the ADSL modem into the router's wan socket

Plug the two laptops into two of the router's four LAN sockets,

Now the hard part, "configure the router with my ADSL login information". How do I do that??

Thank you very much

That depends entirely on the ADSL router. You should be able to find this in the documentation that came with your router, and/or on the website of the manufacturer.

In order to get assistance here, please post details of the exact make and model of your router.
