Wifi Router vs. Switch+WAP

I'm needing to create wifi access for my business and at the same time be able to plug in multiple computers in a room with only one ethernet jack. I'm wondering if a regular wireless router would be sufficient, so I can kill two birds with one stone, or if I would be better off getting a switch + wireless access point, or does it matter?

The company's network already has a firewall/router, so this equipment would be behind that.

What would the easiest set-up be for this situation? Thanks!

    If you already have a router, a switch and an access point would be best.
  2. I'd highly recommend seperating the traffic for the wirless, and using WPA-2 + AES + 11 character long password, so the wanna be hacker dosen't PWN your network.
