wired?--nope, sounds like you've got everything you need.

check the connectors at the back--look for something that looks like a phone jack on steroids. Those would be the jacks for ethernet (called RJ45)

one cable each goes from computer to router.

software already installed in router and each computer will automatically set up your network.

You will be needing UTP cable with RJ45 on both ends.

Connect this RJ45 on your ethernet card/lan card at the back of your desktop pc and the other end on your D-Link DSL 504T.

For more detailed instructions click this...
