an AP is used to extend you wireless range and will connect to your router to provide network and internet access. An AP by itself cannot connect to the ISP since it does not use a WAN port

a router is an AP that will allow you to connect to your ISP for internet connection. A router can be configured to work as an AP but a AP cannot function as a router.
