Adding a wireless router without the ability to disable everything will just add a subnet and cause the need to forward all ports. What I'm suggesting minimizes the workload on the router making it all done on the server without the need for the user to worry if something is still enabled. For instance, a lot of routers can be hacked via WPS and if you turn it off on some (like my E4200) it still stays enabled. If you disable the firewall on the router on some routers it stays enabled.
So all I was suggesting was two easy "proper" ways of adding wireless to his server without being bottlenecked by a single user device like a wireless card. The easiest IMO would be to use an extender which doesn't carry the same abilities as a router and some can be flashed so they are basically "dead" unless told otherwise by the user. DDWRT on some actual routers do this too, like the WRT54G.
