Sort of related: what's available at a more home-use friendly price? I
wouldn't mind a little wireless LAN between me and a couple of neighbours to
play quake and maybe share net access (and costs) over dial-up modem. I've
seen the linux-wireless lan site, but can't find any of the products for
sale in the UK or Ireland.
