I am staying with some family for the next two months and they don't have wireless internet at their house. When they bought their house it was wired for ethernet and have the modem going to a netgear 8 port switch which is going to the different rooms of the house. I would like to add a wireless access point to one of those 8 ports coming from the switch. Is that possible?

I currently have a TP-LINK TLWR740N router that I can configure into an access point, or I can buy just and access point. Unfortunately it is not an option for me to plug the modem into the router and then the router into the switch.

Thanks

Yes just configure the the router into an AP and connect it to one of the ethernet port in one of the rooms.
