I have a T-1 connection and was wondering if I can use a regular Linksys Wireless G router (the same as I use for my cable high speed connection) or if I need a higher level router.  If so, any recommendations?

Is there anything else required with these routers for a wireless network or is this it?

You could "convert" your Linksys Wireless router into an access-point by disabling the DHCP server and by not using the "Internet" port, simply plug one of the LAN ports into the LAN segment off the 1841 router.

Yeah, I agree, lrmoore answered the original question.  If anything, at the most, I deserve a minor assist with minimal points.
