This sounds pretty straight foward. I assume you are using access points that are wired into you LAN. Each client would have a PCI-352 or PCM-352 card. You can also use a work group bridge and support up to 8 users directly from a small local area network. (Note: Use 128 bit WEP).


You may need to stick small panel antenna in the windows for the client side. If you use more than the attached antenna, you need an LMC-350 (in place of the PCM-352) card that allows you to hook to an external antenna. The PCI-352 already has the RTNC connector.


Also, consder the AP-1200. The base radio is about the same cost as a AP-352 series, but you have to add the 802.11b card... cost about $150 more. It is worth the cost since you can upgrade to 802.11a/g later and run a dual system.
