Will 108Mbit do it?  With a matching (D-LINK) wireless router, the D-Link
DWL-820 will do 108Mbit.  It's a wireless gaming adapter that plugs into the
ethernet port, so it doesn't need drivers.


I use it with a standard 54g network, so I can't really speak to the 108
aspects, but it says it does it.  I use mine for a SD MiniMyth frontend.

Come to think of it 108Mbit is higher than 100Mbit, so looking at the raw
numbers, your 100Mbit ethernet would be the bottleneck.  In practice, I bet
the wireless has overhead that eats up a chunk of the bandwidth before
getting to ethernet.  Hmm...not like it really matters.
