Depends on which network you want to set up..

Ad Hoc? Look here:: click here

A full router system?? :: click here


Hope this helps.

Well, i already have internet (obviously) wirelessly and wanted to be able to share things between the 3 machines easily. I have a modem router (BT Voyager 2110). which would be hte best route to go down?

If all three computers already have internet access via the router then they are networked. All that should be necessary is to ensure all computers are in the *same* Workgroup, set at least one folder in each computer as "shared" and configure any software to allow access to the networked computers.

In "My Network Places", by expanding the folder tree, you should then be able to see icons for each computer and their network "shares".
