First question, will a Fujitsu USB D1075 wireless nic work for this purpose?

Second question, any pointers to how to make this small project happen would be appreciated. I've googled and found some but I like to read up on different ideas before I decide where to go. I would prefer to use ipfilter since I've been using that beast for quite some years now, but I might as well take a closer look at pf if recommended enough.

If I recall correctly, only cards using the PRISM chipset support access point mode. You might have a look at the m0n0wall project: http://m0n0.ch/wall/

It's a FreeBSD based firewall that's designed to work like an appliance and works very well with low-power, flash-based PCs. Soekris (soekris.com) makes several mini-computers with PCMCIA slots that will accept most wireless cards and run well on m0n0wall.

I believe Linux people are doing this with Soekris boards as well.
