Unix-based Wireless Access Point
    I'm doing research this morning into how to set one of these things up. I just ordered 2 prism based wireless PCMCIA cards for about 30 USD each. I've got an ISA to PCMCIA adaptor. So I'm building my own WAP soon. I've got an old 486 I'm thinking of using and will probably go for FreeBSD as the OS, as I think the prism2 support there is a little better. This should be a fun little project and hopefully not too frustrating. Found lots of docs this morning on these, so it looks like I'm in good hands.
