Have you ever used an access point in your network? They have functions similar to that of a wireless or a wired router. The only difference between a router and an access point is that the access point acts as a port to connect to the devices that are outside the router’s coverage. Also, access points are used to connect a larger number of users to a wireless network. Routers may be the optimum for home networks with very few devices, whereas when you are in an office environment where the number of devices is more, then a router alone won’t be sufficient. Most of the modern-day routers have the access point option built-in. So, you can make use of one of your routers as an access point. But for that you have to enable the access point option. Only then the router will stop acting as a wireless router. The router we are speaking about --- the Belkin router --- also has the access point feature built-in. So, now, let us look at the steps to setup Belkin router as an access point.
