This is a very simple task. I am not sure where you are starting from so I'll start from the beginning. You will first need a broadband or dsl connection and a modem. Once/If you already have this we can begin. This week there have been many sales on the linksys wrt54g router for 50 dollars, this is an excellent router and an excellent bargain. You may only need a wired router but I think this may be the best deal anyway it supports wireless and wired. Ethernet cables can be purchased from any store office max, staples, circuit city, best buy, wal-mart or your mom and pop store. If you're looking to run a long amount of wire you may want to look on ebay as people sell up to 100ft of cat5 cable for very cheap. Alternativley you may wish to splice and connect the wires yourself (a little more difficult) The wire, cat5 connectors, and tools you will need can be found at any home improvment store. Once you have decided on all of this, and have the items necessary post another question and I'll help you get started
