a PII system.

change the AP to ADHOC as well. also you could make it an INFRASTUCTURE client as well, leaving the

He said he already had an access point that he is trying to link his 
firewall to, so any wireless card that can operate in infrastructure 
mode should work fine, regardless of the chipset.
