so i dont need to 'set up home network' then??is it done automatically by router?

No.

You'll still have to set it up.

The laptop will have to download the PC Printer driver to allow printing over the network.

Games should be ok.

Try to print something and look over your network for the PC printer.

It should do the rest...mine did.
