If I recall correctly, only cards using the PRISM chipset support access 
point mode. You might have a look at the m0n0wall project: 
http://m0n0.ch/wall/

It's a FreeBSD based firewall that's designed to work like an appliance 
and works very well with low-power, flash-based PCs. Soekris 
(soekris.com) makes several mini-computers with PCMCIA slots that will 
accept most wireless cards and run well on m0n0wall.
