ADSL modem Router and two computers

I have just set-up Broadband, I have purchased a Netgear ADSL Modem Router (DG632), which has both USB and Ethernet connectivity cababilities. In the blurb it says "NETGEAR's ADSL Modem Router lets you connect two devices - Ethernet and USB".
I have it connected via the USB port and cable to my desktop computer, this works fine. Because it has both the USB and Ethernet connection cables, would it be possible to use the Ethernet cable and connect and configure it for my laptop which has a Ethernet port, or is it likely to be only one or the other type of connection?
I would hope to be able to use both my laptop and desktop machines through the same modem router. Is this possible does anyone know before I start trying to configure and get into a mess!!

via an Ethernet cable - just go ahead and click the cable into one of the router's LAN ports, and then connect the other end to the same port on the laptop.
