Network Connection Question

Hello All
I am a recent convert to Debian.   I have installed Debian in my old computer i386 machine (Configuration given below)
I would like to know if there is a way I can have this macine to identlify the network and the ip address.   I have DSL Internet connection - I have a DSL Modem and a 4 port Linksys Router.  I have 2 computer connecting to this Router - One running Windows XP and the other Debian.   My question is
1.   How to have it identify the Network connection?
2.   Can I have it work as a firewall and a router - the DSL Modem connecting directly to the server.?
I have a mouse which connects to the USB Port - but its also not being identified by the X Window.  
What commands I need to execute?   Need some help.
Thanks & Regards,
