Make sure that those connections are not being bridged with something else. Then check to see what are the addresses they are getting. it should something like 192.168.0.x and the gateway should be If they are not getting those addresses then they are not connected to the router. Also make sure your internet settings are set to automatically detect settings. and make sure you are not dialing out to make a connection. If you have ICS disable you dont need to have it with the router. Make sure you configured the router correctly for adsl you need to have it through pppoe.

First can you browse to the router. Typically this is by using a web browser eg Internet Explorer and entering teh IP address specified in the installation manual eg If you can see the router then you have connectivity. Next make sure that the clients have DHCP enabled. Do this by going to Network settings and make sure that you set DHCP to enabled.

Let us know how that goes
