Right now I have the SMC 8 port barricade router... has the built in printer and com port for my ext modem..

but some of the laptops users want to have wireless access also..

i do not want to get rid of my 'wired' router...

but, if i got an access point, and have uplink to the access point would that work? and if so, which access point should i get?

An access point should work fine. Make sure you get the same brand as the wireless cards if possible. It's easier to make it work and work well that way.

I think most access points have an uplink port, mine recomends using the uplink port to program it on a 'secured' wireless network.

I'm using 802.11b at home, three computer have wireless cards, and the fourth has a nic that is connected to an access point and all computer can communicate.
