test if the router will provide an IP without being connected to a DSL line. Some DSL routers will not work when they don't detect a DSL line.

If DHCP is providing you with an IP, then ll you need is connect a network switch for additional LAN port if you need more than four.

power up the router without DSL connected, connect your computer to it, open the Command Prompt, and type ipconfig

if it shows an IP starting with either 10. or 192., your router does not require a DSL line and all you need is connect the other computers to the router and you are set to have your LAN party.
