Just to connect computer to the Net though a Router, You do not need to Network them. You gust connect with Ethernet cables to the router, It's a little more difficult with wireless as You have to start putting settings in the Wireless computer, that are in the Router. Just to connect through the Router. Connect it to the Phone line through a Filter. Then go to Internet Explorer type in the address bar the Setup Page address it will be a number like that ones for mine yours will differ. You then have to set the router up using your ISP and Password etc. then save settings and switch the router off for five minutes then back on all the light should come on that computer is connected to. They will not come on for channels not used
