Yes you can, with just a HUB if your ISP has issued you an IP address for each PC. The DSL modem can be connected to the uplink port of the HUB, if a uplink type port is unavailable on the HUB, a crossover cable is needed. Depending on the brand of router the ISP is using some adjustments might be needed in the router configuration. Most of the adjustments in router configuration will be in the areas of bridge groups and NAT entries.
Additionally, some operating systems provide Internet Connection Sharing (ICS). When you use that type system, one machine must be left on to provide the gateway to the internet for the others.
