Small Office Network with Wireless

Hi All.
I'm setting up a small office network with (1) XP Server, (5) XP Desktops, (4) Wireless Laptops, (4) Paper Printers and (1) Label Printer. We already have a Cicso WAP44410N to use. I have some locations with only single CAT5e ports to service multiple devices, so I'll likely need a small 4-port switch at those locations.

1. Should I buy a router to put in front of the DSL? Any product recommendations?
2. Should I run the laptops with DHCP and fixed IPs for all other devices? Or fix IPs on the laptops too?
3. For wireless security, use a Key? Or filter by MAC?

I figured the setup would be DSL-New Router-Cisco WAP44410N and switches/hubs. Correct?

Thanks for your help!
