then the answer looks to be yes thats all i need to set up the network. all the traffic to and from the internet will be processed by the WLAP and be passed to the modem plugged into the 10/100 wan port
Unless I missed it, I didn't read anything about connecting to the Internet in the "dlink wireless lan access point" description. Wouldn't you require a wireless cable router to set up an infrastructure network? Plus 3 wireless adapters - in your example the 2 pci and 1 pcmcia.
If you set up an ad-hoc, peer to peer network, using Internet Connection Sharing you would only require the 3 wireless adapters. I use 2 USB wireless adapters and 1 pcmcia like this and it works great - why pay the extra?
ah here we go right i need the equivelent of a router but in wireless form. ie something that hands out ip addresses on the net work that my modem will plug straight into a wan rj45 plug on it and everything else accesses via wireless transmission only, thus no need for builtin wired support.
this is what i thought the wireless acces point did but nowhere explains properly the exact peice of kit that will meet those needs. this is pathetic on behalf of the manufactureers they seem to be able to do it for wired networks why not wireless networks
