Hi, we have a 10/100 cat6 network with T1 access to the internet. Our internet gateway is through a linux server and a cisco router. I would like to add wireless access point for visitors.  Can I just purchase a small wireless router, add it as a node on the private network and forward requests to the public internet?

YES, this can be done.

If you want restrictions like who want to access the Internet, then you have to go for Enterprise Access Point, however if you wish to provide Internet to all (with some security), then you can go for any access point.

Just make sure that you keep the AP and the IP provided to the Customer in a Seperate VLAN, so that they do NOT ponder your Internal Corporate Network. I have implemented such option at my work place.
