Searched all morning but didn't really get all the information I needed about access points. Background : I'm running a Netgear 4 port router for the wired network for 3 computers. My mother just recently bought a laptop and needs the freedom to roam around the house. Instead of going all wireless, I think the easiest way would be to either 1.) get a wireless router and configure it to the existing network or 2.) use access points which I have never done before. What would be the most efficient way to go about setting up a wireless network for my mother? How do access points work? Are they plug and play? Thanks.
