I have a wireless router for my home network (cable). Now I would like to have, on the same wireless network as my router an extra wireless access point to widen the range of my wireless network.

So in short:

INTERNET => WIRELESS ROUTER with some pc's attached => wireless accesspoint with some devices + wireless to which some wireless pc's can connect

Maybe it's not all clear, but it isn't totally to me either. I just want to figure out what extra device I need to buy. My current router is a Linksys E3000 with GB ports and wireless on it. On of these GB ports I would like to use to put a switch on (again some pc's on it) which has also possibility to give wireless access, but this should be the same ip-range/network  as the router.

I hope we can figure out what device I need to buy.
