I need to add wireless to a clients home network, they are on point-to-point wireless for their connection, and already have a router installed that's pre-configured for their setup with PoE to power the antenna on the roof

I have been asked to add wireless to their setup, am I right in thinking I'll just need an Access Point, something like this:

Hi, yes that or the smaller 701 is fine, just be aware that the DHCP server is on in these by default, you will need to turn it off. I am surprised the ISP supplied router does not have wireless in it ,what model is it.

It's a Linksys VOIP gateway/router, one of these:

Thanks for the advice, will turn off DHCP
