[lug] Dumb Wireless Networking Questions

OK, folks, these are n00b questions supreme, but I've never thought
about setting up my own wireless network before so bear with me.
I am giving serious thought to buying a Tungsten C, so I'd like a WAP at
home for internet access. I assume for this to work, I just need to buy
a WAP (Linksys or whoever) and connect it to my Actiontec gateway (modem
cum router)? Or am I missing a piece of hardware?
Are there any recommendations as to which WAP is best? And, since
someday I'll probably be giving Qwest their gateway back, is a wireless
router a better purchase? Or is it unadvisable to run a router off a
gateway (which seems like it could be)?
Thanks for any help. The one-to-two computer networks I've laid out
aren't too useful for things like this.
