    Ok so I have been doing some research and I'm not sure if it is possiable but I want to set up a home network (obviously) here is the plan I have come up with in my head. I want to know if it will work, we have high speed DSL and our house has LAN cables wired to every room of the house form a location in our basement.

    1. Internet comes in the house
    2. Then to Server / modem
    3. Then switch in basement (Where LAN cables go out to house)
    Then here is where I question
    4 a. 2 desktops and a wireless router connected by LAN cables (via centralized LAN cable to switch)
    4 b. A wireless access point on same network in different area of house (via centralized LAN cables)

    Basically what I am asking is, is it possible to have a wireless router and wireless access point on the same network so that I could hypothetically walk throughout my whole house while using the internet and not have to switch networks.

    Thank you

    Yes, of course. You will need to connect the WAP to the switch/router. That's it.
