    buying on the market is most likely cheaper then ebay...thats that i've experienced till now...
    if ur looking for something fancy, try d-link...otehrwise i suggest netgear as well...total for the 4 components could be between 6-9k

    Do you want to share internet connection for the 3 machines ? If yes then you will need a Access Point/Router.

    If you only want to share files within the internal network then you could very well do with Wi-Fi PCI cards for the computers & then setting up a Ad-Hoc network.

    What exactly are you looking for from this wirless network? Provide details please.

    Shared internet connection laptop and desktop

    Hi,

    You can use a wireless router cum access point for this. I bought a Netgear WGR614 for Rs. 2375 from Lamington Road. The RJ 45 from your modem plugs into the router. Upto 4 desktops/printer/whatever else also plug into the wired ports of the router and the laptop connects wirelessly. If your laptop does not already have wireless capability, you should be able to get a PCMCIA wireless card for about Rs. 1500-1600.
