Hopefully easy question here: i have a modem or router or whatever it is i get with my DSL internet, and i also have a linkseys wireless router. is it as simple as i think it is to connect two computers together and to the internet by hooking both into the back of the wireless router?

Wireless is for my Wii, and i want the more reliable and faster network connection between my new (vista home premium) computer and my xp pro system.

PS. i also want to have be able to print through the old system and it's printer because i doubt my old printer will have x64 vista drivers, and a few other reasons.

thank you
