Money?? well the cash can be paypal'd to gamerfreak@gmail.com

But anyway
Look on the back of your router. There should be 6 ports on the back. One for power, one for WAN (your cable that comes in that takes u to the internet) and four other ports to hook up to you other computers. SO Take the ethernet cord from you cable modem and hook it into the WAN slot. Then Take 3 ethernet cables and hook them into the 4 ports on the back of the router. Then take the cord and hook them into the NIC "network interface card" In the back of the other computers. If you dont have a nic card you can get one for about 4 bucks at New Egg But most newer pc's have them intergrated. It would help to know the router model number becuase some require network configuration. Hope that helped,
-gamer

hahaha i knew that about the money i was just messing around. But year just hook it all up as i said above and then go to start>My computer> My Network Places (on the left menue bar)>Set up a home or small office network> and then follow the wizard. At the end of the wizard it will ask u if u want to creat a network setup disk adn select yes and make one. Then pop the disk in your roomates computer and configure that. Then you are ready to go. If wnat to share files right click the file you want to share files right click teh file u want to be shared and click properties. Afetr that click sharing and check "share this file on the network" and it will be accessable on the other computers through the "my network places" area as i directed you do before,

Let the router handle your logon rather than any software on your computer. And setup the router as a DHCP server and all of your PCs to obtain an IP address autimatically, Once you get one PC connecting to the Internet through the router then it's just a matter of plugging the others in. All must be set to obtain an IP address automatically, and all must belong to the same Workgroup name if you want them to be able to see each other on the network.
