I was having problems sharing an ADSL connection to three different PCs,
using a router...

The modem I am using is US robotics routermodel 8000-02 MAC address
00C049A807B8
Basically what I do is when I connect the two PCS to the relevant router
ports, I configure the LAN TCP/IP properties accordingly: defaut gateway
set to the router internal addresss 192.168.123.254, and IP addresses set to
192.123.254.1 for the first computer and 192.123.254.2 for the second. Then
I fill the China Telecom DNS server addresses 202.96.209.6 and
202.96.209.133. What else need to be done?
As you said I am thinking maybe it is the router that is not configured
properly, but there is no software with it on either PCs? So I don't know
how to set up the router as DHCP server as you suggested...
Thanks.

1) The IP addresses are wrong! If the router's LAN address is
192.168.123.254, then the PCs MUST use 192.168.123.1 and 192.168.123.2. Not
192.123.254.xxx, since it is not the same IP network subnet.

2) To set up the DHCP server of the router, you must access the internal
setup menu of the router itself. There should be a DHCP section.
