    I'm thinking of networking our office's computers which consist of three PCs and a notebook. I need to network primarily for file-sharing and printer-sharing -- no real need to share a broadband connection, although this may change in the future. Keeping that in mind, I was thinking of getting the Linksys Wireless AP + Cable/DSL router with 4-Port Switch:

    My question is this: Since I don't need (and don't have, except for dial-up) an Internet connection just yet, will I be able to use the Linksys unit?

    Sure. It'll work fine.

    But its overkill. Just get a switch, and a wireless access point.
