If you want to setup any additional computers in your house you'll likely have to setup a network of some variety. Depending on the capabilities of your router it can be very simple or complex. We would need a lot more details about your situation and expectations to offer any kind of suggestion, your post itself did not really ask any questions with enough information to make a good answer.

Take a look at untangle and other premade distros just for such a use.
