depends on what internet connection you have? as its a home network Ill assume you have cable/DSL

YOu will need either a wireless access point, or a router/swich with wireless buil in this is what I use

Then each PC will need a wireless card (desktops need a PCI wireless card and Laptops need a PCMCIA network card)

And in addition try this site (especially the networking wizard).  Of course it's trying to sell you their products but the principles apply to all hardware.  (& there's not much wrong with the Belkin range ;))
