Now my wireless NIC in my thinkpad is finally running, so now I need an AP at 
home. But for people like me, standard APs are not good enough. :) As I 
already have a server (PII 350 MHz) I think adding a wireless PCI NIC with an 
external antenna would be a better idea. However I can't seem to find any 
complete list of cards that actually work in host AP mode.
I've been looking at the "D-Link AirPro DWL-AB520" but I can't seem to confirm 
whether it actually works in host AP mode. So my question basically is: Will 
the D-link card work, and/or could you recommend other cards that have these 

Also, I'd like to hear from people who have some sort of VPN running on their 
Linux boxen running in host AP mode. Links, tutorials the works
