A friend of mine recently recommended I get an access point in addition to the router I have.  What access point should I buy?  I have an Apple AirPort acting as my router/access point for about 30 wireless devices in the house.

My plan is to have my router hard wired to my desktop and smart tv, then an access point setup to serve the rest of the devices that use wireless (Nest, Baby monitoring cameras, cell phones, ipads, etc).

When you recommend an access point should I make the Apple AirPort the main router or have the new recommendation be the router and turn the AirPort into the access point?

Thank you.
