Problem setting up a router

Hello Experts,
I have a “Network Everywhere 4 port Cable/DSL wired router”.  I can’t get it working.  My friend is letting me use it and he has been able to get it working in his network.    TCP/IP is installed and has no special configuration, it's all default.  It's ready to obtain ip address” My internet connection is not working though the router and I can not access the router when typing in http:\\ (which is the ip address of the router.  I'm not sure what I'm missing here.  I have to pc's and can't get it going on either of them.  Both are windows XP machines.  Everything is connected properly.  I've even tried following their directions online that says to power up everything in this order; cable modem, router, pc.
Any suggestions?

the first pc with and as a mask
and use with the second pc and of course with as a mask.
and then use as a gateway on both machines..

Ok, that got me closer.
I can now access the router and log into it, but the two pc's don't see each other and I don't have an internet connection though the router.
