Rookie wireless

I'm trying to set up a 2nd network with a wireless adapter on the other side of the house.  The adapter is a pci adapter.  The network will have three computers and need to access the one adapter.  Plus, be able to transfer files within the group.  I have a wireless router in place and I get a great signal, but I'm at a loss for getting the three computers to see the internet together.  At the group I have a 4 port switch.  IS there a solution?????

  Not sure I understand the question. Do you mean your are trying to set this one computer up as an "Access Point" and have three other computers connect to it? I.E. you original wireless router won't reach the other side of the house so you are trying to extend it via this one computer?

Thank ou for the help.  My question is do I need two devices one at each end,  the distant bridge would be hookes to a switch?

Please let me know


You would probably need two devices. However, check the manufactures site of the existing wireless router you have now. They may make a device that will bridge to it. That way you would only have to purchase 1 device.
