    Box1:

    Connexant PCI ADSL Modem
    XP

    Box2:

    Airport Extreme (g)
    Apple G4 ibook Laptop

    I am new to wireless but would like to to do the obvious thing - link
    them up and have Box2 use Box1's connection.

    From all I can gather I should get a WAP and a PCI wireless card for
    PCI and estabilish a wifi network by means of box 1 and the wap to which
    box2 would then connect.

    My question is: since I only need to connect these two machines can I do
    without the WAP and only with a wireless card? The concern is not so
    much price but also trying not to have boxes around. So failing the
    above, are there any wap points that live inside pci cards?

    Any help much appreciated.
