By Chilli_Willie ·
is there a way to use a router as an access point to conect to my exiting wiress network so all the systems that are hardwired to this wireless router can then use my existing internet connection??

Yes, ,, that's why its called a WIRELESS Router. Takes over the functions of your existing access point and integrates them into the router functionality.

See the wireless section of the router admin screen.

Saves an AC outlet.

Wait a minute, you want to ADD a wireless router to your 'exiting wiress network', meaning you want to keep the access point? Do you have range limitations?

No you aren't following my question, i wanted to know if I can turn a wireless router with a built in switch that I use for my hard wired systems into an access point to then access my existing wireless network.

But I think I am just going to use an accesspoint into a switch instead. I am really trying to avoid running alot more cable
