    If a Modem/Router with 4 ports is used, and there is no need to share printers, files etc, does Network need to be set up on the computers connected to the Modem/Router, or is each computer regarded as stand alone, and just connected through the Modem/Router.

    You just need to set TCP/IP to obtain IP address automatically for internet access through the router. If you don't want file or printer sharing, just don't share anything.
