3COM Linkswitch 1000

Hey guys I've been playing around with a 3COM linkswitch 1000 trying to get it hooked up into my homenetwork. I have a hub already that I've been using to connect all my machines and access the internet, but I wanted to replace that with the 1000 switch. I have an MDIX port and all the other ports on the left side of the box. I'm not that familiar with configuring and setting up switches as you can tell, and I've read the directions on it-but it doesn't really say how to hook it up the way I want it done. I just basically want to connect all my machines into the switch ports and then my DSL router I want to connect the ethernet cable from that to back to the switch and then be able to have all my machines access the internet. It hasn't been working what do I need to do fellas? Thanks for the guidance
