How to config 3 comps with a wireless router?

Specs: Windows XP
I have 3 computers, a wireless router and a wireless printer. How could I configure them so they could all see each other on the network and have internet as well?

This is a general question, not based on a specific situation, I simply want to know if it is possible and if yes, how so?

Thank you!

Yes, it's possible. There's not really any point in explaing how if you don't actually have a specific requirement. Obviously the details will depend upon the specifics of your intended system.

Come back and ask again when you have a specific requirement.

So if I don't have a real problem, but just want to find out for my knowledge, you won't be nice enough to explain it to me?

I'd put it more as, if you've been given some homework questions then I won't be nice enough to answer them for you.

It is not my homework, I study Literature, I simply want to study Networking and I come across some questions that I can't explain and that I want to know the answer to. You are not obliged in any way to help me out. Thank you anyway.

I take the risk of replying in Ijacks place.

1. We are volontary helpers who do it for free in our spare time and are not obliged to help anyone. We do however prefer not to waste our time.

2. Without the specifics of your system it would take quite a long time to explain all possible set ups in a readable way.

3. In a fraction of that time you can find the same information by using the search engine of your preference. A key phraze could be "how to set up wireless network".

If you want to study networking I would recommend that you buy a good "Networking For Dummies" book rather than looking at random questions. That way you will gain a proper understanding of the subject and the answers to these sort of questions will become obvious.

As I said, and Nigel reiterates, it is impossible to give a detailed answer without knowing what hardware and software you are working with. Network configuration is quite different on different OSs. I'm happy to help with specific problems but I'm not able to conduct networking tutorials.
