You'll probably need to plug the cable modem to the cable line. Then plug an ethernet cable from the modem to the WAN port on the router. Then connect each of your computers (via ethernet cable) to the router.

How do you connect a router to a network that uses a switch?

I'd say: just plug it in! Routers are to be placed between the modem (cable modem or ISDN or something alike) and the LAN (in other words the switch, which opens up the LAN). All users connect to the internet or another system via the router which will be the default gateway for the LAN. Switchs do not have a special port for routers. It doesn't matter which port you use. Everything else will be configured by the network settings on the router and the clients within the network. (In order to configure the router you might want to use a crossed patch cable and connect directly from your workstation to the router. Modern router provide a homepage through which you configure the device. By using the crossed cable you can be certain not to interrupt the normal network)
