Should I wait until I get my printer before setting up first home Wi-Fi network?

I will be receiving my new router and wi-fi adapter about a week before I'll receive the new wi-fi printer.

 

This is my first experience in pulling a network together. It will just be a desktop, a notebook, and the printer. No internet.

 

I just wondered if there's anything to be gained by waiting until the printer is here before I dive in?

 

It will be a D-Link based system.

 

Thanks

Actually you will need the router and computers setup before you setup the printer anyways (depending on the wireless options). So the printer can detect the WiFi and the pc can find it to install software.

Thanks.

 

Now I need to find a decent "Step by Step" guide, starting at the very beginning.
