Router for ethernet connection (Noob question)

We have a small office for our business. In the office we have a dedicated internet connection that we connect to with ethernet cables

We'd like a wireless network but all the routers we have are from previous home offices which require a telephone line input.

Can you please advise what I would need to purchase to set up a wireless network for the office which would allow us to connect and transfer lots of data at decent ranges

Thanks in advance

If the old routers have WiFi capability, you need purchase nothing. It is simple matter to turn them into Wireless Access points. Go into their settings and change the follwing: turn off their DHCP servers and give them IP addresses on your current network. (So that you can 'talk to them in future'.)

While you are in the settings set them all on the same WiFi channel, SSID, and encryption key.

Now simply plug them into your Ethernet.

OK. Thanks for the advice

So how do I access the settings?
