My boss wants to add a wireless router to our wired network with a domain. I am not too familiar with wireless routers. I would think most of them would do the job, but to make sure, it would have to have DHCP capability, and i would have to be able to assign DHCP range. It would just be used for guest internet access. Range should not matter, would have to work only in the office. Does it matter that i have a domain, or if i manually assign the IP Address and gateway to router, it would work right? I would think any router should have these capabilities, but just want to make sure. Any recommendations? Thank you.

All routers include a DHCP server. On most of them you can assign the range (but that in my point of view, for guest access, should not matter, you'd be on a separate subnet anyway...). Domains shouldn't matter either, as the guests shouldn't access the domain resources anyway. All they need access to is the internet. So for these requirements you can get just about any wireless home router.
