I currently have an ADSL Modem/switch that supports two computers. I would like to add a wifi connection so guests can surf as well. What would be the cheapest type device to get the job done? I have a fairly small and open apartment so range is not an issue.

What's the make and model of your existing device? – David Schwartz Dec 21 '12 at 6:45
  1. Replace the existing modem/switch with an ADSL wireless router.

  2. Change the existing modem/switch to bridged mode and add a WiFi wireless router.

  3. Configure a wireless router as an access point (make sure to disable its DHCP server and don't use its Internet/WAN port) and connect one of its LAN ports to the existing switch.
