Default Looking to move to BT Homehub?

Hi I'm new to all this however here goes at present my home has a ALOBB-DF3940 supplied by my provider AOL which sits in my front room.
It only has one LAN socket, which my TV is plugged into.(I do have dongal which I have not used)
I need a wireless router which will allow me to connect my TV, my DVD player, WII using a LAN Cable and also allow me to use my laptop (wirelessly) and my Zeppelin Air using Airplay.
Will the BT Hub do this for me or do I need to look at something else.
I'm looking at BT because I have had big problems with AOL, until BT came out and put me onto a 21st century line!!!
I just need to be able to connect more to it
Thank you for your help

This forum is dedicated to woodworking routers, not the electronic kind.

To answer your question, your provider is not your problem. (however AOL is garbage) you need to pick up a home use router like a linksys E1200 . Plug the WAN side of the router into your modem. Your TV, computer and the like will plug into the built in switch. Your laptops, tablets, and whatnot will connect wirelessly.
