Hucky, I have a similar problem... maybe someone can help us both :-)

I have a wireless lan router and 3 PCs. Need to connect each PC to network and the connect router to an ADSL modem. Particularly concerned about security. Am using XP Pro (service pack 1 installed). Can anyone give some guidance or referwence to sources of information. Thanks.

OS doesn't really matter, i have a wired and wireless set up using / Sharing BB, Printers x 2 and access from all 7 PC's to all 7 PC's hard drives but tend to make copying to / from PC to a specific folder created by my self on each PC laptop. couple of rules to make it all work, give each pc a static ip address in the range 192.168.0.X increasing by one as you add PC Printer etc starting the router as then make sure all PC's are in the same workgoup, then enable file sharing. then from a command prompt ping each item from each item ie main PC ping router ( main to other PC ping etc, i will monitor replies if you need further info
