Single port DSL with WIFI

I am currently thinking of switching service providers and upgrading from cable to DSL.

My problem is that I have 3 computers in my house, a PC, an iMac and a Powerbook.

I asked the guy at the DSL company over the phone if I could hook it up to a wifi network and have web access on all 3 computers, he said that the DSL line came with only one port, and therefore can only be used on one computer...  

I'm currently providing my 3 computers with web access via the wifi system and the cable modem, so is it possible to do the same with the DSL connection?

Yes it is the exact same configuration as your cable modem wi-fi setup.  You just plug the DSL into the wi-fi router the same way as you do your cable modem.

You can use  your  Wifi router with  most any  DSL provider  i know  verison and  rcn  work fine  on  linksys routers  you will have to  program the  router with your username and passwrod  depending on what  the provider wants for sign on .. What DSL  provider are you looking  into ????? maybe  can help ya more on what you need to setup and what make model  wifi   do you have now???

i figured out the problem

what happened was that my clever dsl provider blocked the entire 192.168 block of ip adresses, disabling any router from using those numbers.  so what i did was change the ip address on the router to 10.10.10.10  and it suddenly started working.
