I have two desktops and one laptop. At present I want to use just the two d/tops wired to a router - 10mtrs apart, but may want to connect the L/T via wireless at a later date - so would I be better getting a wireless router and just use the wired connection until I sort out the lap-top.

If I go this route can outsiders tap into my router and use the 'wireless bit' of the router ?

If you don't get a wifi modem/router now, you'll want one eventually for the laptop, so get one now and use two of its four LAN ports for the desktops.
