Buy them from ebay in the US... I picked up two silver lucent pcmcia
cards with isa adapters and pigtail antenna adapters for $450.. One
runs the inet gateway in ad-hoc mode. You should probably look at
the prism2 cards as they support the host AP mode.. not that it makes
that much of a different whether you bridge or not. I also picked up
3 x cisco aironet 340 cards for $500 or so.

And btw, it's worth it... (Coming to you now from the couch :)
