A wired router , right, not wireless.
Do you have a broadband connection ?
there are two types of cables streight through and cross over, you need the streight through type. Each pc will need a cable and a port on the router. There more than likely will be a WAN port on the router , your cable modem, broadband modem will connect to this.

You will need one cable going from the Modem to the router.
You will need another cable going from the router to a computer's Ethernet port.

In your case, you need 3 cables.


Theres what it looks like. (Drew it myself!!)
