here are some interesting WiFi links that I have used:

http://elinux.org/RPI-Wireless-Hotspot ; see this for AP instructions
http://pingbin.com/2012/12/setup-wifi-raspberry-pi/ ; lots of controll over wi-fi security etc

note: not all USB WiFi adaptors can be placed into Access Point (AP) mode. The WiPi one from Element14 can - or at theast the two that I purchased last year handle it. Otherwise, you can use them in normal mode, ie: link the RPi to an existing AP else where in the house.

If you find your module 'drops out' from time to time, you can fix it fairly easily with a command line fix (thanks perseus286!)
Create and edit a new file in /etc/modprobe.d/8192cu.conf
sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/8192cu.conf
and paste the following in
# Disable power saving
options 8192cu rtw_power_mgnt=0
Then reboot with sudo reboot
