Anybody ever built a WAP out of a WNIC and Windows? I figure it can't be
too much different than the time I built a simple router/firewall out of a
Win98SE box with ICS and 2 nics. All I really need to know is how to set up
the WNIC (infrastructure, ad-hoc, other?)

BTW, I guess I should mention that the reason I want to do this (other than
to find out if it can be done) is because every time I set up a traditional
WAP it keeps getting "borrowed" for other projects. I figure a nice, ugly
junker desktop won't be borrowed so easily.

TIA
