A coaxial cable outlet in the home is modified for Internet access.  Then, the coaxial cable goes from that outlet to the back of your cable modem.  Your cable modem then connex to the router (it plugs into the odd jack out, not into jacks 1-4).  Your router splits the IP address issued by the DHCP server into a bunch of it's own IP addresses, starting with 192.168.  There is no "main computer."  The router is essentially that.  You then hook your PC's or PS2's to the router via ethernet, or over a wireless connexion if that is compatible.
