Yes that's right - connect the server to the switch.

You won't need to buy any new hardware.

A little more information would be helpful.

How do you have the current wireless network configured?

E.G. Do you have one wireless router setup as a base station and the rest setup as repeaters or are they all physically linked via ethernet?

What make/model are the wireless access points?

How is DHCP currently being handled?  You will need to disable it on the wireless.

Thank you very much for the reply, 06 access points of model DWL-2100AP WIRELESS 108GB ACESS are placed in the office, all the access points are terminated to the fast ethernet switch and dhcp is disabled, as said in the previous post until now no server now we have placed an order to purchase the server but server does not come with wireless support hence i think need to purchase the additional hardware , please suggest me what all hardware is required to setup a server so that desktops/laptops can be configured to  server as a clients. Thank you.
