If you have a router then you don't need a server. You need one Ethernet card in each computer. You connect the Broadband cable to the router and a cable from each computer to the router.

The second option is "internet sharing" that is build into Windows XP. That option uses two Ethernet cards in a "server" PC - one connected to the broadband and one connected by cable to a Ethernet card in the second computer. This option requires the "server" PC to be operating to transfer the internet signal to the other PC.

The above is possible only if bsnl allows you to connect a router. Your local computer shop should know what is possible on tlhe bsnl network.
