I might rather take this route when i want to have my server do other stuff. 
I have had the linksys WRT54GS in mind. It has wireless... But here i need 
to learn how i can protect my LAN and internet usage with the wireless

It is about a year now since i shifted to using linux from the 'other OS' 
and it took me less than a month or two, before i started exclusively using 
and then evangelizing Linux and KDE. As Nigel mentioned in the other 
post... it is definitely worth it. :-)
