PC & Apple on LAN with PCMaclan Hub and Router

I am improving a network by adding a router (Etherfast Cable/DSL Router RTR 4Port 10/100 4 RJ45) for better security now that we have broadband (to share the connection)

There is at present two PC's and one Mac on a LAN connected by a HUB using PCMaclan.  One PC has Win2000 and the other WinXP.  

We now have broadband and will be connecting the PC with internal modem (connected directly to internet) to the other machines by a router for better security and internet sharing.  The other PC works as a print server using Best Artmosphere for colour balancing etc.

I am concerned that when I connect each machine to the router that the addressing already setup through PC Maclan will be messed up and the printer connection also.

Otherwise I would be confident unplugging each machine from the hub and then plugging each machine into the router and following the 'easy install guide'.

Any suggestions or reassurance that I wont mess this up will help?

Which machine has the internal modem?
you whould be able to use ICS and the host machine, and share the connection

or if your bb connection comes with a free modem (external) connect it directly to the WAN side of the router, and the three to the LAN side (the traditional setup)
