    Really easy mate, just stick an ethernet card in your pc and connect through that.

    Modem --> Router ------ > PC

    Check the Linsys website out theres loads of guides to help you install the hardware.

    Two options (*DO NOT* jam the ethernet cable into a dialup modem, damage will result):
    1: Get an ethernet card, insert it into an empty PCI slot (a simple installation, if you've never done this)
    2: The router you mentioned is a wireless one, so you could get a USB WiFi key (not the one available through nintendo, one meant for computers)

    so the connection would be:
    broadband modem -> Router (->) reciever -> computer
