Cabled router +wi fi connection

  User-42BE0B3A-FC75-4118-BB8E1390237F847E 12:40 22 Feb 2008

I have a Linksys router (BEF5841-for use with cable modem) which is connected via Ethernet cable to 3 PCs.
I have just acquired a Dell laptop which is Wi-Fi enabled. I can easily connect this to the Internet via a cable to a spare port in the router.
It would obviously be more convenient if I can plug a device into the router which will transmit wirelessly to the laptop.
Is there such a device? Approximate cost?

replaces you router with a wireless/cable router you can connect usually 4 PCs by wire and several more by wireless

yep; cheapest way is to replace your present router with a wireless one which also has several lan ports
