OK ... it is the access point that I'm not clear about.  If I'm reading
this correctly it sounds like I could just plug the pcmcia wireless card
into a laptop and plug the laptop into the network.  As long as the card
is configured as adhoc it would then work as the access point?  Would
there need to be any routing software installed on the laptop?
