Using pfsense as an access point only

Hey all, sorry if the answer to this is simple but I couldn't figure it out.
Basically I just want to set up pfSense as just an access point, so the Ethernet port would connect to the current router through a switch and the WiFi card would broadcast an AP, nothing more.
I've done this with dd-wrt but I cant find anything on how to do it on here.

Just use one of the wrt flavors or a stand alone AP. Wireless is not a strong point for pfSense.
Using pfsense as just AP seems wasteful at best.. For starters wifi is not a strong point of pfsense anyway. 2nd you could pick up any cheap 20$ wifi router and use it as just an AP. More than likely that would be smaller, cheaper and use less power then some pfsense box with a wifi card in it. And more then likely provide better wifi coverage to boot.
