I have 2 desktop PCs in my home. The host PC
has a DSL modem. The second PC (call it PC2) is connected via
phone line using software called HomePortal provided
by Bellsouth. I purchased the WKPC54G kit in order to
bring a laptop into the mix.

The router works fine. The host PC can "see" the laptop and
PC2. The laptop can "see" both desktops. The problem is,
PC2 can no longer "see" the host PC, though the Internet
connection still works. It appears that the presence of the
router has affected the ability of PC2 to share the files
residing on the Host.

Any ideas?

Have you configured port forwarding on your router ?

I suppose the host pc used to have the IP address which is now in use by the router, and is using a private IP address using NAT (Network Adress Translation) ?

Sample of port forwarding on a Linksys Router :
