>I've got (sort of) the same setup here. I bought an SMC2404 Barricade
from komplett.ie. It's a 4port router with wireless AP built in, and it
serves my purposes fine. There's a newer version which supports 802.11g
(the 2404 only supports 802.11b) aswell.
Setup and configuration were easy. The barricade is configured over the
web. Internal addresses are (by default) 192.168.2.*. It does DHCP, and
has a built in firewall and intrusion detection system and other bits
and pieces. It's supposed to do 100M indoors and something like 50M
outdoors. I've gotten a connection from it indoors when I couldn't see
the AP at all.
As for linux specific configuration, there is none. Just your normal
network setup. The router / AP is connected to another 10.* internal LAN
(in UL) and works fine.
Chat ya later,
