... and what do you want to do with them?

The WAN port of your Belkin router will connect to your Broadband modem (cable or DSL). Next connect each computer to LAN ports on the Belkin. If each computer is set in their TCP/IP properties to "automatically obtain IP address" (this is the default setting) and you have "link" lights on your belkin router indicating a proper connection, then this should be enough to get internet connectivity to both computers.

Beyond that, you can share printer and/or files between the two computers, but the above needs to be successful and we need to know the O/S of the computers in order to help you set that up.
