Howdy:

The only way to get a wireless router and wireless cards for each of your systems is to buy them!!

If you knew that then why did you ask how you go about getting a wireless router for your home?? :tazz:

I would have thought you would only need the second part of your question asked and answered thus, YES, you will need wireless NIC's for each system as well !!

You'll have to go to Control Panel --> Network Connections, and see if you have an available Wireless Network Connection. If you do, you have a PCI Wireless Card already installed, but if you don't, you'll have to buy one for each PC. After buying them and installing them, you'll have to run drivers, or set the network wireless properties selecting the detected wireless signal. It may be encrypted, or it may not. It depends on your router.
