the E4200 is already a dual-band integrated wifi device - the wireless range ang signal strength is improved already. what are you gonna use an access point for? or are you referring to a wireless adapter instead?

Definitely as a WAP.
Currently have a WRT-600N downstairs next to the cable modem. Upstairs without a WAP, the signal is not the best.
Got a WAP4400N and it helps but there are still dead spots.
Just wondering if upgrading the router will help, And maybe a new WAP.

I spent a month working with the E4200 only to have to take it back to Best Buy. They do not make or at least support a WAP that can be utilized as repeater. Customer service was also slow also.
I tried to get support using a WAP4410N which is a great bridge or repeater device and consumer support told me I would have to call business support to make that work. Wow, nice support.
I took E4200 back. Bottom line the transmission is equal to the WRT350N that I have. Secondly, dont make a big deal about the 5GHz. It doesnt go through walls as good as the 2.4Ghz.
