We are going to be at a trade show where I will need to set up a WAP.  The trade show will give up a public IP address and like 10 additional addresses for Internet access.

I need to put about 80 devices on the wireless so the 10 they are giving won't be enough.  So, I need to setup a private network using a router and then add the WAP to my private network and hand out DHCP.

What I'm looking for is a low end simple router with a simple setup/wizard that I can use for this.  I won't be attending the show and it will be someone w/out a lot of networking experience so I need to have them easily be able to change the addresses w/out any problems.  

I will also say that using an actual wireless router is out of the question as we will be using a Ruckus WAP we already have.

Could someone please recommend a router that might do this w/out to much cost or learning?     Thanks....

Hi pclark6127,

Almost any router with an ethernet WAN port should be able to do this for you.  
Something like the  Netgear WNR1000 would be fine.

Setup should be very simple - the only bits you'll need to touch are 'Basic Settings' and 'LAN IP settings'.  Check with the trade show whether they will assign you a public IP by DHCP or give you a static IP that you will need to set on the router.  Then you'll simply cable the ethernet WAN port to the network drop they provide, set the static IP (or select 'Get Dynamically From ISP') , set the LAN IP range for DHCP and away you go.
