1) are you using a hub or switch (does not really matter)
2)are all machines XP
3))plug modem into hub have a look on the back of the hub on some models it depends on which port you plug the modem into.
4)plug other 2 computers in to hub start fire fox or IE do they connect to www. if not then run the network wizzard.
Go start>control panel double click on network connection click on setup home network

I connected all the computers to the router and ran the network setup wizard on the host computer but when i picked the option that this computer is hooked directly to the net it gives me an error messege saying,
"Other computers cannot connect to the Internet through this computer.
In addition to its Internet connection, this computer must have a connection to your network."
So now im thinking is the old network interferring with this new one?

Could you please tell me what country you are in, If you do not want this as common knowledge send it to me in a pm.
The reason I ask is dlink firmware is different between countries.
This is a wirless router but I am guessing you are using it as a wired network.
Ok you should have the telephone plugged into the adsl port on the router.
on computer 1 go to the command prompt and type in ipconfig /all (note the space between ipconfig and /)
What do you get as ip, subnet mask and gateway.
We need to unplug all but 1 computer from the router.
The first time you setup the Router it is recommended that you configure the WAN connection using a single computer making sure that both the computer and the Router are not connected to the LAN. Once the WAN connection is functioning properly you may continue to make changes to the Router configuration including the IP settings. This chapter is concerned with using your computer to configure the WAN connection. The following chapter describes the various menus used to configure and monitor the Router including how to change IP settings. This chapter discusses the steps to first establish the WAN connection. The remaining features, not directly concerned with establishing the initial connection, are explained in Chapter 4, Web-based Management. It is recommended that you install and configure the Router using one non-networked computer. This allows you to verify that the ADSL service is functioning and that you are able to communicate with the device.
Did you go into the router and use the setup wizard to connect to your ISP provider?
As this is now your modem and needs to be set to talk to your ISP as was your original modem.
