It is possible to use just the Access Point portion of consumer
"broad-band Router" devices.  I found this to be easier and cheaper than
purchasing stand-alone AP's.  Basically, disable all the router functions
(DHCPD, NAT), and leave the "WAN" port that connects to the cable modem
unconnected.  Connect the gateway to the "LAN" ports, and that's it.

I have written an Wifi-IPSEC guide here, the first portion of which has
some more info:
