Trying To Set Up An Home DSL Network

Hi, If anybody out there would beable to help by giving me a website some where or right through here would be great. I am trying to setting up an SBC Yahoo! DSL Home Network in my home. I already have a 4 port wireless router and the cables, but I have no idea what and how to set up the settings in the computers (one wireless and other cable) to work with the router. Can somebody provide help? Thanks alot.

I am guessing that you already have the nics installed on each computer?

Definitely have a look at the instructions that came with your router, it will help you out.

Connect the DSL modem to the router (there should be a special port for this). Then connect the cable for the one computer that is not wireless, to a port on the router.

What operating system is installed on both computers

There are ethernet ports for the two computers. One is on XP and other ME. What are NICs?

NICs are Network Interface Cards.  Some NICs are built into the motherboard and some are separate cards that you plug-into the motherboard, usually into one of the PCI slots.  The Ethernet port is the part of the NIC that you connect your cable to.
