I'm not really good at networking but, i know something.

Now u've got a switch and a router. You should connect your PC's with the switch and the switch to the router. Then configure your router i.e., give it an ip address and enable its ports. Then configure the switch by giving it an ip and thats it.

Important: The ip address of switch and the computers should be in the same class. Say, if switch has an ip like 10.0.0.1 then PC1 should be 10.0.0.2 and PC2 should be 10.0.0.3 and so on.

Your router should be connected to the internet and could have anything dynamic or static ip. Static ip is preffered if u wish to configure the router bcos u need to know the ip.

A PC's default gateway will be the ip of the switch its connected to. This is all i can tell you, its been a very long time after my n/w classes are over and i'm not in touch with it now.

I suggest you install Boson Netsim software and work out on router configurations. Its an virtual network simulator, an educational tool. Or Better ask someone whose really in touch with this field and could help you.

wat do u wanna do?
just play multiplayer games with ur frnd only or connect to the internet and play on the net.
if u just wanna connect 2 pc's (i.e ur frnds and urs) then u wont need the router.
buying 2 pci wlan cards wud hav done the job (by making an adoc connection).
this is how i connect my main rig, lappy and my N95 8GB.
but if u wanna connect more than 2 pcs then u'll need to setup an access point (adhoc mode would also do but has a limit ot max no. of clients).
first tell me exactly wat u wanna do.

THANKS i think it would work but wanna ask you one thing with this mode can i connect with more than 2 access points with this mode.
In that option of station infrastructure it also shows a field of BSSID, what should i enter in that or should i leave it with default values viz, '00000000'.
