    Yes. All wireless routers (that are also a switch and have RJ45 LAN ports) will allow a WAN connection (the internet), wired LANs and wireless access .... all at the same time.

    I don't know what exactly you plan on doing with your devices, but if you get the router and have questions on configuration, just post again in this thread. We will be happy to help. :toast:

    Yes, there are better/faster routers, but since he did not specify any particular requirements I assumed that he just wanted a basic router for internet access on both wired and wireless devices.
    I use a basic TP-Link N-router at work for guest access to the internet (bypasses my network domain) and it works just peachy. :)
