To do it on the cheap, you will need a cardbus or pcmcia to isa pci card,
and a wireless card to plug into that.
That is the setup I have at home, a sitecom wl010 pci-cardbus card that
I got for 40 quid from PC Works in Tottenham ST and a Silver Orinoco
that I bought through ebay in the states, I paid $40.
I haven't tested it with more than one client, so I can't comment about
that, if you plan to have multiple clients you an consider an AP,
prices are much higher...
Do check consume.net, and/or subscribe to the list.
And remenber, I still owe you a beer.
