Both modem and computer(s) connect to different ports on the router.
Like skizzott said, you'll probably get it when you see it by the labels on the ports.
Once connected to the router and modem, you can go about setting your broadband and wireless connections through the desktop you have just connected to the router. Here is an examplehttp://www.mesquire.com/faq/computer...s/networkg.htm
The broadband connection may differ, especially if you are using a cable modem/broadband, but configuring the wireless network and connecting your wireless clients to it are the same in principle.
