Provide a little more informtion.

What does a "little server" mean.

What is the purpose of the server. File storage and sharing? Media streaming server?

Why do you think you need 3 "access points/routers"? They each serve different purposes. Describe the purpose / requirement and then you can get advice on the proper equipment.

Any computer can be a server.

What you need is to test out some software first and Windows home server might just be what you are looking for. :)

Hi,

Check out www.xpunlimited.com. Allows any XP pro computer to run a terminal services like function.
Three licences can be free - just an annoying popup every so often.
