Wireless Network Speed - Will having more than one computer on the same wireless network have an impact on the wireless connection?

As you add more computers to your network you're going to lose available bandwidth, it's just a technical fact of using the wireless connection; however, for everyday use - IM, chat, e-mail, and web browsing - you should not notice any real speed degradation, unless you have hundreds of machines on the connection all accessing the network at the same time.

You may notice slowdowns if you are using network heavy applications, such as large file transfers between computers or having multiple computers playing network-intensive games; but, this is by no means typical use for a home user.

Do you have any opinions or network optimization tips?
