Other than the common issues in setup to both ... no. The Macs and PCs
will be unaware of other other's existence, and the router hardware doesn't
care.

Well, it's not quite true that MACs and PCs are unaware of each other. For
example, they can PING each other. Their native file-sharing schemes are
different, so they won't share files or printers with each other unless you
take explicit measures to make that happen. But this issue is the same
whether the MACs and PCs are connected wirelessly or with wires.

By unaware, I meant that they won't know or care if the other computers
are PC or Mac.
