Top 6 Indoor Wireless Access Points

Like if this guide is helpful
An indoor wireless access point (WAP or wireless AP) is a small device used to connect two or more computers without the use of cables in order to share files, applications, or an Internet connection. Some buyers may confuse a WAP with a hub, but although they function in a similar way, they provide two different services. A hub enables devices to connect to a wired network, whereas an access point enables wireless connection for devices within an existing Ethernet local area network (LAN). When considering the top indoor wireless access points, buyers have to consider certain factors, including the inbuilt features, throughput speed, and how well they maintain the throughput speed as the distance increases.
