    Well I think I'm gonna ask for a WAP for xmas. Here's what I have:
    Linksys BEFSR41 (A Cable/DSL router w/ 4 port switch) 4 computers are hooked up to it, so it's all filled up.

    I want to add a WAP to it so that my laptop is part of the network as well (not just internet, I'd like it to work on the windows network there so I can share files)

    What's my options? Best option?

    I've looked into it a little bit, but quite frankly, I don't know a lot abou the whole thing. I have only seen two options: WAP that would take up a spot on the router, kicking another comp off (none of them have wireless) or a full on Router/WAP which (correct me if I'm wrong) would put the wireles stuff on another network (as well as one other computer that i would have to move over). Is there such a thing as a Switch/WAP? That seems like it'd be ideal... help

    Multiple answers.
    1. WAP with built-in router / Hub - If it has router built in, you can turn off the advanced features so it will just act like a hub.
    2. Hub / Router with separate WAP.
