Hi Bonze,
the absolute min is two usb or pcmcia wifi cards and build an ad hoc connection. (not recommended) what i would go for is 1 x air station and two x cards, you can then build a proper wi fi set up and also connect the BB connection straight into the wireless station.

Does that mean 1xrouter and 2x cards.

yes, as the cheapest most reliable option, one x air station / router (acting as the base staion)2 x either usb or Pcmcia cards but you would need an adapter on your PC to take the card
