That's pretty much all a consumer wireless router is for. Everything you connect to it will be on one subnet and will be able to communicate as needed.

Do NOT get a router unless you are using it to connect to the Internet. It will cause a lot of prolems. ou need a network switch. And parallel computing is a disaster over wireless. If you are going to mess with parallel you need to understand networking so you will be better off manually setting IP configurations.

Yes a router will work. Just don't configure the WAN connection. It will work for connecting wireless devices together. I would pick a fast router though if you have a lot of devices to connect. See our article below to help you select a router. We recommend the ASUS RT-N66U for most people as it is both powerful and fast However, parallel computing over wifi sounds like a lot of data going over the network which almost certainly would be better cabled. Also setting these devices with a static IP rather than relying on DHCP would be a good idea for you.
