I just wanted to add some more recent information. As of Feb 2000, it is possible to set up a home wireless network using 11Mb 802.11 (HR) for a very reasonable price. I'm using lucent's ISA adaptor inside my desktop system ($60 for isa adaptor and $180 for the pcmcia card that goes inside) that's acting as my wireless bridge. The bridge is running linux 2.2.9 + pcmcia + wavelan2_cs driver available from lucent. Then my laptop, also running linux, but could easily run anything else, also needs a pcmcia card and drivers. Total cost was only $220 for the bridge, and $180 per laptop (it helps that the laptop and adaptor was paid for by our lab). not too bad. Another option is the Apple airport base station, a little more expensive, but adds a modem too. cheers.
