Ethernet Modem -> Wireless

I have a wired modem that uses Ethernet to connect to all the computers I have at home... is there a device in existence that I can plug into the modem and allow my laptop (say) to connect to it wirelessly... I need to replace the cables with wireless without buying a new router and series of USB adapters for the PCs.

Can it be done?

Thanks for any thoughts in advance...

Do your existing computers have wireless cards/ adapters?
No. Sorry you need them.
Yes. Try an access point I have found Netgear Wg602 to work well. Needs to be set up in multipoint mode. Explained fairly well between the in box documentation & the help side bar on the configuration page.
