Hello,
In our house I have a broadband modem connected to a wifi router which
I use to connect (by wifi) to the Internet on our only computer. We
now have an office which is out of range of the wifi (30 metres and
several stone walls). I have run a rj45 network cable to the office
and plugged it into a LAN port on the house wifi router. Could someone
tell me what I need to buy to be able to connect to Internet by wifi
in the office, preferably without having to do any complicated
configuration? For the moment I don't need to do any file sharing over
a network, but I may need to in the fairly near future. Do I need a
wifi access point or another wifi router (routers are slightly
cheaper)?
Many thanks for any answers.

Get a wireless router, and configure it as an access point, as described
in the How To below.
