You don't need to know anything about IP addresses to connect all your computers to a router for internet access on all of them.

First make sure you've got internet working on main computer that's connected by CAT cable to the router.

Then connect all the others to the router with a CAT cable just the same as the main PC. You should now have have internet access on all of them.

Make sure of the following;

internet line is plugged into the routers WAN port not a LAN port
logon to the router and make sure its in NAT mode not BRIDGE mode.
