Default Wireless Access Point

I'm trying to get a wireless - G access point for my father. It only needs to connect 3 - 4 laptops? Anyone have any reccomendations on which one to buy? (I don't really want to put a lot of money into it)

I want an Access Point not a wireless router. So I want to use my existing router!

Get a WRT54GL

It's technically a router, but you can disable the WAN port on it as well. I also recomend flashing this access point up to the DD-WRT firmware.

It's the best access point for the money, feature wise it takes on the 1000$ Cisco 1200 series access points. It's just amazing and super stable.

And you can completly turn off routing and DHCP on it
