Hello there, I am thinking of setting up a wireless network at home. I looked for help and advice in this forum but could not find information on the DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WIRELESS ROUTER AND WIRELSS ACCESS POINT. Which one should I go for? Please someone tell me, I am getting a bit frustrated now. Thanks for your time and effort, Marios
A wireless router is a wireless access point with routing functions i.e: a wireless access point does layer 2 bridging only
A wireless router is a wireless access point, but a wireless access point is not necessarily a router. For instance you can buy a WAP (wireless access point) that plugs right into your existing router/hub/switch like this: click here Or you can buy a WAP that is also a router like this: click here
