I use the router to connect 12 computers to the internet and set it up like this...

I use DHCP on the router and set the hosts to obtain automatically, unless you have been assigned 2 IPs by your ISP.

set the subnet mask to

Set the default gateway on the hosts for the router.

Make sure that the router has been assigned a routable IP.

Sometimes I have to search for a computer by name or IP to see them on the network. Of corse this all depends on what mood network neighborhood is in. Most of the time properly configured computers will find each other in a few minutes.

If you have problems try pinging another computer or the default gateway (run command promp ">ping XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX". IF you do not get a reply then there is something amiss. If you can't ping loopback then you have some hardware or harware configuration problems.
