Hello Eric, welcome to Experts Exchange.
To answer your question requires a bit more information.
1. what type of network are you looking for?
2. what results are you looking for?
3. how many computers are you looking at networking?
4. what operating systems are you using?

The number of possibilities is endless.  
More than likely your current systems have enough capability to build a basic network already installed
