Please could someone tell me what the difference is between a router and access point. I have a Netgear Rangemax wireless router which can be used as a router or access point and I am not sure which is the best way to use it.

A WAP is primarily intended to be a means of adding wireless capability to an Ethernet network. The WAP, in other words, acts as an intermediary between clients and the host (a router or a server) rather than as the host itself. You can use more than one WAP in a network.
