How many ports does the router have on it?

Typically you would go internet connection (such as cable modem) plugs in to your router (usually 1 port is labled "WAN"), and plug the PCs into the router via LAN ports.

most likely the router and PCs have DHCP enabled, which automatically configured their IP address. Turn on your cable modem first, wait 30 seconds, turn on the router, wait 30 seconds, and then boot your PCs.

If that doesn't work, post some more specifics of what you have.

Did your ISP give you any documentation with the router?

You should be able to just plug the PCs into the router and go. I assume they tested the router configuration when they installed your DSL, right?

you mean an internal network? What do you want to accomplish? File sharing? Something else?

If you google windows home networking I expect you'll find a lot of stuff. Or post up something specific you want to do.
