    Ok so we have 4 macs in my house (3 imacs and 1 macbook) and they are all connected wirelessly to the internet via a linksys wireless-n router. I always hear about people file sharing, print sharing, etc by connecting to each other's macs within their own homes. How do I go about doing this? None of the macs recognize each other or anything like that. Am I missing something?

    go to your control panel and click on sharing. there will be a whole slew of options for you to check for various file and printer sharing.

    as for gaming, just by being on the same network should suffice.

    what do you do if you don't have a wireless router?

    can you use the inbuilt airport?...and if so, how?
