You should be able to connect the wifi router to your cable/dsl modem and connect the machines to the router. If you aren't familiar with how to setup a router, I would start by resetting it to factory defaults (there is usually a pinhole on the back that is used for this). I would then hook the router up to the modem, and reboot the modem. Give it a few minutes then try connecting one of your machines to the router and see if its working. If it is working you could then connect to the routers interface and setup any options you wanted. How you would go about doing that depends on the router you have, but most likely would be opening a web browser and going to 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.100
