You basically connect all your computers to the router with ethernet cables. For each computer, take one ethernet cable, plug one end into the ethernet port on the router, and plug the other end into the ethernet port on the computer.

Your router should automatically recognize the different machines, and you should be able to see each other in-game with any game that supports LAN play.
