We have a Router which we use to share broadband. I want to use a different wireless device to create a seperate network for file, printer sharing and lan gaming but no internet connection.

Is this possible and which device should i be loking for?

You could install a second Wireless Network Adapter in each PC and set that up as a separate "Ad Hoc" network. This makes no sense as they are already networked via the router so, to prevent internet access, you still need to disconnect the router from the internet, which gives you what you want in the first place!
