Um. What model is the ZOOM "router"? Are you sure it's a real router
(does it say that on the box)?
My own Zoom X5 router (which works perfectly with multiple computers)
has an ADSL / phone line input, four Ethernet ports, and a USB port.
That means I don't need a separate switch.
On the other hand, there are such things as ADSL Ethernet modems. These
don't route, and only support one computer at a time. These will simply
"bridge": take anything that arrives on the Ethernet port and send it
out to the Internet, and anything that arrives on the ADSL port and send
it out the ethernet port.
I suspect you've got one of those.

Tunnels are completely different things. I don't think you're asking
But you should read http://www.zoom.com/products/adsl_overview.html and
check which product you've got.
Hope this helps,
