Looking at moving to a cooperative where they have whole building wifi internet access. I now have a wireless router connected to a cable modem. Is there a way to connect my home network setup to the building's wifi for internet access and still maintain my home network setup?

Best solution

a b 2 Internet access
a c 204 F Wireless
a b X LAN

Yes, there a number of ways depending on their connection and your equipment. What do they recommend to receive their Internet access?

One fairly simple approach is to connect on whatever wireless router or AP you need to connect to them and then have a second router that is attached to the first from an LAN port on the first to the WAN on the second and create a "shielded" internal network sort of like THIS except using wireless.

Thanks for the help. Won't be moving for about a year so will give this a try then.
