What is the difference between a wireless access point and wireless router?
To have an access point you need some kind of routed on your network already. For most home users they just add a wireless access point if they have an older router that does not have built in wireless. If you do not have a router already, you want a wireless router for sure.
For businesses they buy multiple access points to extend the range of their wireless networks. They still need a router, which would not be wireless in most cases, it would be a commercial grade router. Then they have access points all over the building (or buildings) where they need wireless access.
