I don't understand this part. What is this router, exactly?
Do you have other computers on a local area network with which you would
like to use the Internet? If so, you can have your Linux box work as

If you want multiple computers to share a single IP address then you need
to use IP masquerading (or just use a traditional proxy configuration).
Read the IP Masquerading mini-howto.
And be forewarned: you may not be able to get the slink ipmasq package
to work; I found it much better to configure IP masquerading by hand.
