From you comments I guess you want a router with WiFi (Wireless) capablity. There is quite a range of routers to choose from I have found the TP-Link brand to be very good, if you dont want WiFi then you will pay conciderably less.

Other brands from various bigger name manufacturers abound, the site I linked above has a vast selection and are very good to deal with. All these routers support 4 wired ethernet ports.

IPStar would have assigned you a IP address and SubNet, and most likely some DNS server addresses. These are loaded into the routers for their WAN port setup, and your PC's are set to get an address automatically via DHCP from the router and away you go.
