   I am getting myself a nell pcmcia adapter in a short time (already 
   bought it on ebay, waiting for it to arrive). I planned to use it with a 
      orinoco silver card. The machine itself is a IPC with 36MB of RAM, I 
   use it for my pppoe connection routing. Since I got myself a laptop and 
   it has wireless support, I plan to make my IPC a wireless gw too (only 1 
   client=laptop, and since my internet connection is 512/256 I only wish 
   it to work so fast (it can send files over ftp to my main computer 
   almost 500KB/s, so it should have enough power for sofware endian 
   conversion, I hope), if I need to share files with my pc, I just plug it 
   in my ethernet hub, but it would be nice to get my home wifi compliant) 
   Will it work? Or am I expected to see lockups and panics? I had no 
   problems with crosscompileing the kernel with nell or wihack, but since 
   i don't have the nell yet, i'm just asking if it will work or if buying 
   it was just a waste of money.

i use a sparc classic for a wireles gateway and dialup box.
it works flawlessly.
