hi guys, I just need some help in setting up a small wifi network and need some suggestions because I know basically nothing about wifi networks.

So here is the idea ..

Purpose : to share files and stuff on DC via wifi .

So i have thought to put up a standalone computer which will be running at all times. We will connect a wifi router to this.
Range can be approx 20 ms

Questions --
How many laptops can be handled by the router ?
Can laptops connect among each other?
Plz suggest a router and estimated cost ?

Any help will be appreciated :)

If you want data sharing among the computers, then u don't necessarily need router, u can do it without router too. Create ad hoc network. But transfer speed is not too great. !!!
I and my friends used this type of network for playing counter strike. ;)
