With the use of my router (ASUS) I have set up a home network. Is there software that I can use it to chat to other computers on my network? Which one is the best of them? Thank you.

This is the one a lot of people swear by, AChat:

Pidgin supports chat using zeroconf (AKA bonjour) - you can install bonjour on your windows systems (or avahi on your linux systems), and use pidgin to chat - i believe macs support this natively with ichat.

Also try out IP Messenger. Light weight and very easy to use.

We used VCM (Virtual Corporate Messenger) at university. We also used the main product at the site to get passed the port-blocking in order to use Napster and CuteMX, heehee.
