Wireless -> WAP -> router -> linux/windows/printer

I am in the process of setting up a network as a "subnet" of my current home network. I currently have an available wireless connection to the internet. Could I connect to this through a wireless access point (WAP) and hook that directly to a router (non-wireless)? I would like my network to look like this:

As in the subject I would like to set up something like this:

54G Wirless -> G WAP -> router -> combination of linux/windows/printer nodes

Does anyone see any problems with this? I want to make sure the WAP can connect directly to the router before I go crazy over on newegg.
