    I don't know at all. I just want to know about routers/switches/or other devices required to set up a home/small office network. Which can be used for printer/file sharing/internet sharing etc. Can anyone in BG help me in that?

    Networking is a form of communication between two computers, our very own internet was a prime example of networking which was first introduced by US army to establish and maintain communication during nuclear attacks. As they were using technology driven by frequency, less chances of interruption while data packets were transmitted.
    Networking in 21st century is a vast ocean of knowledge and is unlikely for one to achieve comprehensive ins and outs. But for gathering basic knowledge on it, you may want to google few keywords such as; IP, basic networking, adhoc, wifi, small office and home networking etc. Microsoft has a detailed collection of very helpful information on their site, since most of us are using windows operating system. See each OS has its own patterns of networking, like Unix based OS uses different networking method comparing to Microsoft. It all sums up to serve one noble cause, which is maintaining communication, yet their built is mind boggling chapters of those heavy books that they teach in the universities.

    How can I share my internet connection with another PC which I'm gonna use as a home server? I mean what's the cheapest way to do that? I don't want to keep my primary PC running 24/7.

    You can use cat/Ethernet wires or cables, use them in you motherboards, most motherboards have Ethernet ports. Now after you sort out your cable you need to buy a Switch, a switch is device which looks like an ordinary modem but they have Ethernet ports, some of them has 5 ports some has 24, as you are in budget, you should pick up a cheaper yet durable one.
    Next you need to configure windows, there is a wizard in XP for setting up small home office network, follow that for both computers and you should be fine.

    @Wintereise .
    Get yourself a cheap router with dual Ethernet ports if you don't want to put in any effort, otherwise, what @xebecs said will work.

    What is port-forwarding? Will doing it increase the speed? Can it be done using a TP-Link router which CvP uses? I mean the one that costs ~tk.1900.

    @Wintereise .
    Port forwarding does not increase any of your any speeds. And yes, it can be done only if your ISP provides you a real IP. By default(In its routerless state), all ports are forwarded. CvP uses a Linksys Wrt54gl last I'd checked, but yeah, doable with both.
