The following are the major differences between a wireless router and a wireless access point in computer networks.

  1. A wireless access point is just like an Ethernet hub. It connects the wireless stations to a LAN network. A wireless router is an access point plus the wired Ethernet router.
  2. An access point relays several 802.11 frames. A wireless router forwards several groups of IP packets between computer nodes.
  3. Wireless routers have small scale applications like houses and shops. A wireless access point has large scale business and industrial applications like university Wi-Fi.
