Hey,

The Ideal or best way to use time machine is to use it with a external hard drive. Backing up into the computer itself has small value, if the hard drive in the machine crashes, So does your backups.

So you need a USB hard disc, preferably 500GB or more depending on the size of your computer hard drive, and then set up time machine pack ups to be performed to that drive.

A short good video about how to choose a back up drive

So once you have your hard drive, you need to set it up on the time machine, just add it there and that should be about it. Ofcourse if you buy a new drive, you first may need to use the Disc Utility to erase the drive and format it as MAC OS X Extended , journaled file system, after that, set it up with time machine and your good to go.

You can manually configure the time machine to accept wireless signal from the router or extender. If you setup WEP on the router or extender, make sure you setup WEP on the time machine as well.
