I want to set up a network for 4 PCs sharing internet connection and a printer. I see that some wireless adapters and routers come with multiple antennas. 1, 2, 2X2, 3 or 3X3? How many antennas do I need? Can I just get a TL-WR740N (wireless router) and then 4 of TL-WN781ND (wireless adapter) for the PCs?

In answer to your last question, yes.

Antennas are just for speed purposes. Any number will do unless you're doing more over your network than just sharing a printer.
