You don't need a WIRELESS router unless you particularly want one or both of the PCs to connect wirelessly.
With a basic router, run an ethernet cable from the router's WAN port to the Cable Modem and ethernet cables from the router's LAN ports to the two PCs. The router allocates LAN IP addresses to the networked PCs and it is the router that connects directly to Telewest.
Just be careful NOT to get a combined "Router/ADSL Modem" as these are not suitable for use with Cable Broadband.
