Default wireless networking question

I need to connect two wired desktops (macs via Ethernet), a DSL modem (Ethernet), an iPad, an iPhone, and a PS3 to the same wi-fi network. The desktops and modem need to be hard-wired. What's the best solution?

Best thing would be to buy a wireless router, connect the macs via ethernet, connect the router to the modem, then create a wireless network with the router for the PS3/iPad/iPhone.
