Using a Wireless Router for an Access Point.

I have Plusnet fibre for internet access, with their Technicolor 582n router. I want to extend wireless coverage into a basement area at my home. I have an ethernet cable into the basement area from the Technicolor router, and know that I can use a wireless router set up as a network access point.

Unlike many, I don't have an old router available for the job. Can anyone suggest a suitable inexpensive router to buy for this? In particular, should I be going for 300 Mbps or is 150 sufficient? I would also like at least a couple of LAN sockets for direct connection to the new router

Thanks

I'd suggest you use a wireless access point. just plug in the ethernet cable and get wireless and three ethernet ports. An example here, but there are plenty of different ones available.
