Only if the packets never leave your private network.

I have done that several times to test new web servers before I put them into production.

what i mean is that all of the computers are connected to the internet also. it is like a normal house you would find with multiple computers in the house connected on a wire to the internet

Which is exactly what I was getting at. As long as the packets do not pass through the router and onto the internet, where they may potentially interfere with others, you have no problems, but it's up to you to ensure that that doesn't happen.

Simplest way (also the most effective) is to disconnect the WAN side of the router while playing around. If that's not possible (Modem/Router combo) then disconnect the Cable/DSL connection. Otherwise you need to ensure that only non-routable addresses are used (10.x.x.x, 172.16.x.x, 192.x.x.x).
