2 computers, don't discount a wired router - more secure & lower cost.
If you go wireless & don't set it up right, you'll be sharing your connection with the neighborhood!
Wireless really only becomes necessary with laptops or where running a wire would be impossible
I have a wired network with a 50 ft span between Router & Switch & am running 6 computers on it at present.
If you go wireless, you have to buy wireless PCI cards for all otherPC's on the network
One thing in favor of wireless is that most wireless routers, althogh more expensive, have wired ports as well
But to get in at rock bottom, all you need is a $20 (after rebate!) wired Router & a few cables>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Enjoy!!!
