Is there any advice you can give on the best wireless access and if I might have any trouble with them interfering with each other? I currently have a Netgear Wireless firewall router WGT624 v2.

The Linksys access points are good. They will not interfere with each other, just tell the Access Point to get an IP by DHCP from the router.

They're made to work together, so no interference.  The router plugs into the cable and provides the wireless network.  The access point extends the signal from the router.  I agree that Linksys is good, but you might want to stick with Netgear so that if you have problems, the support guys can't point fingers at each other.

I agree with tenacium on using the same brand. I've had the issue were techs were pointing fingers.
