Operating Systems

I'm looking at investing in a wireless network for three PCs (two desk tops and a lap top). Two of the PCs have windows XP home with the other on Windows ME. Do you know if this will cause any problems. The PCs are based in different rooms around the house

Also, I am looking at the Netgear DG834GT, has anyone any experience of this - or is there a better product out there. I am looking to share internet connection, files and printers

Many thanks for your help - you will probably guess I'm not a PC 'expert' so simple answers will really help me

I have set up networks using this combination without any problems. I use this type of router and set up configuration. click here I believe the router you mention will also do the job.
