Good luck - you'll need it :-).

http://linuxwireless.org/ has some tables of devices that have
AP support, but they tend to list things like chipsets, which
are difficult if not impossible to correlate with products
you can buy.

I have a little wireless USB dongle I got to sort-of work, but
I have to try plugging it in and initializing the software
two or three times before it actually works. You can find
my saga here:


One thing I found with the USB dongle was that I had to
disable NetworkManager, or it would try and grab the wlan
interface and set it up as a client.
