Are you sure your ISP is giving you a router? Because it sounds like they are giving you an ONT, and if thats the case you will need a router. Because your ISP should only be giving you 1 IP address and you will need NAT to share that with all your devices. The reason it sounds like they are not giving a router because most routers they would give should have some form a switch and AP built in.
Now as far as POE gear, Id look at Ubiquit gear as thats probably going to be some of the most cost effective. HOWEVER, if you dont mind used gear, I hear a lot of people find good deals on eBay for used enterprise gear. AP wise Ubiquiti seems to be that one company every one throws down when people are looking for AP's.
this helps thank you
