wireless access point recommendation please

  1. I tried to be clever by using Virgin Media's kind offer of a 30 day free
    trial to enable me to switch from UkOnline LLU to Sky LLU without
    suffering a loss of broadband. Unfortunately UkOnline fsked up and
    whilst they cancelled my direct-debit they failed to cancel the LLU with
    BT. So now I'm two weeks behind schedule and facing using a free dial-up
    service until Sky is installed or committing to the 12 month VM
    contract. I've now decided to stay with VM for the balance of the 12
    months and switch to Sky after that. Problem is that the hardware I
    already had is just a wired cable router, the Linksys BEFSR41. Hence, no
    wireless for when son visits from Uni. So, I want to add a WAP but I've
    discovered that some WAPs can also be used to extend existing wireless
    coverage and that would be a nice use for the device when I switch to
    Sky. Which piece of kit? I think the "Buffalo AirStation WHR-HP-G54
    Wireless DSL Router/Access Point with 4 port switch" would perform both
    tasks but I'm not sure. What would people recommend?
