hi guys,

i didn't really feel like this belongs to computer help desk or so, but please share your opinions/knowledge on the following "begginers" issue with me:

- i live in a house with 4 floors
- i would like to be able to access the internet no matter where (outside garden included)
- i would like to be able to share files amongst the PCs / laptops i own or someone brings along
- i would like to be able to print from any other PC / laptop to a certain printer, locally connected to a specific PC
- i do not run a company from home, nor am i planning on doing so
- a dsl internet connection will be installed soon

Questions:

- where do i start? - what do i need? (router(wifi?)/server/...)
- if a server is needed, can i "make" one out of a spare PC? - how?
- how did you do yours?
- ...
