Hi,
 
Yes, it is possible.
 
If you haven't connected your router to your setup, you might need to configure your router first. This would depend on your internet service provider. Some connections would allow you to connect your router directly to the modem without configuring the router.
 
Some connections may need your modem to be configured to bridge mode so that it will communicate with your router and you may need your ISP's (Internet Service Provider) user name and password for this. If this is the case you need to contact your ISP.
 
Well, let us assume that you do not need to do bridge mode or you have already set your modem to bridge mode.
 
If you are able to connect to the internet and your router is not yet connected to your setup.
 
TURN OFF YOUR MODEM, ROUTER AND COMPUTER first.
 
UNPLUG the Ethernet cord from the WAN/Ethernet port of your modem. Your Ethernet cord would be the "phone-like" cord. Now, since one end of your Ethernet cord does not have anything plugged into it, PLUG it to one of the four Ethernet/LAN slots at the back of your computer (sometimes labeled 1,2,3,4 or E1, E2, E3, E4;).
 
GET ANOTHER ETHERNET cord. PLUG one end to the Ethernet slot of your modem (it is where you previously had the router connected). Then PLUG the other end to the Internet/WAN port of your router (WAN ports of your router are usually colored blue, while the 4 Ethernet or LAN ports are usually colored yellow).
 
So, just a RECAP.
 
1st Ethernet cord: One end goes to the Ethernet port of your modem, other end goes to the WAN port of your router.
 
2nd Ethernet cord: One end goes to Ethernet/LAN port #1 of your router the other end goes to the computer.
 
 
Alright, now let's see if you are getting internet connection first with 1 computer.
 
TURN ON the modem first, wait for the lights to come up. TURN ON next your router, wait for the lights. Lastly, turn on your computer. Verify if you are getting internet connection.
 
==================
 
Once you are able to connect to the internet. Check your IP address. Go to your command prompt (start>>accessories>>command prompt/cmd).
 
Once you have the black screen open, type "ipconfig/all", hit enter.
 
Look for Ethernet Adapter Local Area connection. Under it look for IPv4 Address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway. Write it down, just incase. Including the DNS Servers. All found under Ethernet Adapter Local Area Connection.
 
Go to Start>>Control Panel>>Network and Internet>>Network and Sharing Center>>Click Change adapter settings, found on the left side pane>>This should open the Network Connections window. 
 
(For Windows XP: Start>>Control Panel>>Network and Internet>>Network Connections)
 
On Network Connections: Look for LOCAL AREA CONNECTION. Right click choose Properties>>Local Area Connection Properties window opens>>Click Internet Protocol Version 4>> Click properties button>>Select "Use the following IP address" and "Use the following DNS."
 
Copy the IPv4 Address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway under "Use the following IP Address". Type the DNS Server address too under "Use the following DNS."
 
Click OK and then Click Apply first, if you have apply. Then click OK.
 
Check for internet connection first. Browse 2-3 different sites.
 
CONNECTING ANOTHER COMPUTER:
 
Now, connect another Ethernet cord to Ethernet port #2 of your router. The other end should be connected to your 2nd computer. You now have 2 computers connected to your router.
 
Go to your Local Area Connection so we can set the IP address to Static. This is the same step that you did when you configured the IP Address under properties.
 
All the information (Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, DNS) are the same Except for IP Address. Example: if you have 10.123.456.34 as you IPv4 Address/IP Address, Copy BUT change the last number, or what we call octet, to a different number (1-254).
 
It could be 10.123.456.1 or 10.123.456.44, etc. Click OK , Apply, OK. Wait a few seconds to minutes. For it to identify the IP. Check for internet connection. Do the same for the other computers. REMEMBER: only the last octet of the IP address should be the same.

Hi Sik613,

First and foremost you should have mentioned your wireless router model so that you may be guided through proper settings. Because settings and menus are different from router to router also depends on the firmware of the router. Now, I will be guiding you through out the details so that you can change the settings, no matter which router you might have.

You can connect more than one computer to a wireless router and also share resources.

You can also assign a “specific IP address” to a computer on your network (connected to the wireless router). So that each time it connects to the wireless router it is assigned a specified address instead of that given by DHCP server. This is usually done for the purpose of routing some ports to specific computers on the network. Therefore, we may need to give them specific IPs.

The computer connected with the network will have the specified IP address even if the router is set to assign the IP addresses, to its client, through DHCP server.

After the basic information now you can go through the following easy to do steps to accomplish this task:

  • You need to login into your wireless router’s web interface in order to modify the settings.
  • Click on the DHCP client list (depending on the router’s model the link might be placed some where else) normally in advanced settings.
  • Note down the MAC Address of the computer you want to reserve the IP address for. MAC Address is always the same for the computers.
  • Now you may go to the “Address Reservation” feature (you can refer to your user guide for the features to find easily).
  • In “Address Reservation” window you can fill in the required fields usually they are “Reserved IP address” [which should be in dotted-decimal notation] , “MAC Address” and “xx-xx-xx-xx-xx-xx” [which should be in hexadecimal form of notation]. Fill in the required fields and Click on save button
  • Depending on your router’s settings you might need to reboot your router in order changes to take effect.

Router is designed to auto-assinged IP Address to each and every computer connected to the network.

You can either use wired or wireless connection, set it to automatic or manually configure an IP Address.

If your Internet Service Provider (ISP) uses DHCP or Automatic Configuration then the router has to be on this settings.

  • Log-on to your router's GUI.
  • Open browser, type 192.168.1.1 on the address bar.
  • Type the log-in credentials.
  • Once logged-in, set the settings to DHcP/Dynamic Automatic configuration.
  • If the router is on this settings, all devices attached to it should be an IP Address.

For wired connection – connects an Ethernet cord form router's port number 1-4 and you should get an IP address different from the other. This allows you to access the network and communicate to the Internet.

For wireless connection – router should assigned an encryption code, SSID and WEP/WPA. Computer should pick-up this network and connect to it manually. Type the encryption code and it should let you connect to the Internet.

Router also assigned an IP address different from the other. Compare to Switches and Hub, that you need to manually assigned an IP Address to each and every computer attached for you to get Internet access.

Your router has DHCP capability and you should enable it. The DHCP server capability will then be the one to manage and assign an IP address to each device that connect to the network. All the devices can then share the internet connection through the router.

Another way would be to assign a static IP address to each device that you connect to the network. Just make sure they have the router's address (the default gateway address) and make sure each IP address is unique to each device to prevent any conflict. The same is true if DHCP will be used, the router will set a unique IP address to each device.
