    For Windows 95, your best 'hassle-free' (and I say that lightly) way, could be to set up the Router. Connect all of them to the router and allow the router's DHCP server to assign IPs automatically.

    On our network at home, it's a simple one...nothing fancy. But when I've had to connect comps running 95, 98 or ME...I've just had to plug in the NIC cable and it was off and running.

    You just need to set up a wireless network so that all the computers can connect to it - provided they have a wireless card or such.

    Alternatively, you could run ethernet cables round all of them.
