Could you run a wireless bridge? If so, I'd go that route. USB could be a bottleneck though... But I doubt it.

Basically you have your Main AP. Which is your wireless router, and you buy another wireless router to bridge the connections wirelessly.

This.



Then you plug your Ethernet in the second router you have near your comp and you're good to go.

I think you will be fine with either. If your signal strength is fine I can't see USB being too slow.

If your going to be using it everyday and not needing to take the USB out to put in another machine then just get a PCI/PCI-E wifi card.

Yeah, the signal will be 54mb/s. It's a bottleneck, seeing I can only muster about 24mb/s from my g wireless bridge.
