Ha, I think I have the exact same router. I think that's a wireless router too? It's not as hard as it seems. Don't make it too hard for yourself.

The DSL/cable modem that your internet provider gave you has an ethernet cable from the back of the modem to your PC now I assume. You need to disconnect that cable from the NIC on the back of your computer and plug that into the LAN or Internet port of the wireless router. Now if you have wireless adapters setup on all your PCs, you should be recieving signals by now. If you choose to use cables instead, just plug an ethernet cable from the back of each PC (NIC) to the ports on the back of the router. You should have connection right after that.

For file and print sharing, go to My Network Places and select Setup Home or Small Office Network. Then just follow the wizard. You need to do this on each PC. Make sure they are in the same workgroup.
