Trying to hang a master-mode wireless off of a linux box, usb or
mini-pcix.  Never had luck with either.  Just too flaky.  Far easier and
future proof to use a dedicated piece of hardware bridged off of an
ethernet port.  Now of course in his situation (battery-powered pi),
this isn't going to work.

Just needed a normal linux box to act as a wireless access point.
