You can run ADSL through a router, you don't need that software for the pc, you can put your user name into the router, pluss this will not require the PC to be on all the time, and for every minute that pc is on the interent under a high speed connection esspecially when nobody is using it, it becomes vulnerable to viruse since they will download very quickly and have many oppertunities to get in since it is always on, Therefore the routere will be the best choice.

When you get the router plug in your ethernet cable from your ADSL modem to your router, open up your brower on a networked computer. Type in 192.168.1.1 in the adress bar, depending on your router brand there will be setting for TC/IP in one of the tabs. You are going to want to make sure it is set to PPoE and then you can put in your ADSL Service providers, username and password that they provided you. There will only be one kind of router that will be different that will be the apple airport, that has its own utility in the utilities folder and if you decide to get that kind we will help you set that one up when the time comes, unless you are unsure and do not want do come back I can give you detailed instructions on that along with screen shots, just say the word and I will go more in depth.
