I will be extending the Wi-fi coverage in my home.
My first thought was to run an ethernet cable from my router to the uncovered area and connect it to a wireless access point device. However, searching for an AP device online, I've been having a hard time finding one that folks seem satisfied with. On the other hand, I've found many wireless routers with lots of positive reviews, so I've been thinking of maybe getting one of those instead. I found it puzzling that devices with more components (wireless routers) should be more satisfactory than those with more limited functionality (WAPS).
Is there any disadvantage in using a wireless router where just a wireless access point is really called for?
