Plug power cord into back of modem and then into an electrical outlet. At this point you should see the lights on the front of the modem beginning to come on.
Check the front of the modem for a solid green DSL light. If the light is still blinking, allow a few more moments before proceeding to step 5. A blinking DSL light indicates a break in the network and will require the help of your service provider if it does not turn solid green.

If your using Windows operating system you can share your printer. That way you can keep your printer on one pc and when the other pc wants to print it will connect to your printer over your home network and print.
How to setup it in Windows XP
To share the printer, I opened the Printers and Faxes folder on the computer that was connected to my printer. To open the Printers and Faxes folder
Click Start and then click Control Panel.
Click Printers and Other Hardware, and then click Printers and Faxes.
In the Printers and Faxes folder, I clicked the printer's icon and, in the tasks pane, I clicked Share This Printer.
I opened the printer's Properties dialog box, and clicked on the Sharing tab.
I clicked Share Name, and then clicked OK. That's it—the printer was immediately available for other computers to use. Now that I had a network printer, I was ready to connect to it and print from other computers on the network. To connect to the printer
I opened Control Panel, and clicked Printers and Other Hardware.
I clicked Add a Printer.
Instead of adding a local printer, though, I clicked Printer Connection and then browsed the network for the printer. The whole process took less than a minute before I was printing to the network printer as though it was connected to the computer.
