Honestly Scott, what were you thinking?  The Great Alton Brown would
surely frown on using a PCI card.  It's just a one-tasker.  You stick it
in your computer.  How is that versatility?  Think of all the things you
can with a Wireless Access Point, even while it's in use:
- Hang it in your Christmas tree for more colored lights.
- Stick it on your bookshelf, and use it as a bookend.
- Keep it on your desk for a paperweight.
- Use the antenna to hold your key rings.
- Add a little more weight to your pile of books for pressing wild flowers.
- Some APs even have beautifully designed venting surfaces that can be
pressed into pie-crust
    dough to create a lovely perforated top-layer of crust for any
covered pie.

I'm surprised that even you can't recognize versatility, when it's been
blinking at you from the across the room for an entire year.
