Hi all! I just recently got a laptop (thar she be!
) with wireless-g capabilities and want to utilize it with my wired home network. My whole house is wired, each room having a ethernet connection. leading to a central jucntion box where my cable modem, firewall and switch are located. Anyway, in my office, I have 3 devices connected to another switch. it is here that i want to place a wireless access point. here comes the noob question =) do i need a wireless router or a wirelss access point? im guessing I only need an access point since my network is already behind a firewall and adding another router/firewall would most likely give me network headaches. Anyway, if it is a wireless access point that I need, what would you recommend. Currently, all my netwrking devices are made by netgear (my firewall, 2x 8 port switches), but I have heard good things about linksys...any good? Also, what features are a must on an access point for maximal throughput and security. Thanks for any info and advice. In the meantime, back to google searching I go =)
