I would really recommend that you keep them separate.  I am not aware of a card like the one you want.  However if you found one it would not be worth the premium cost and you always run the risk of compatibility issues.  Unless you only have one slot left it isn't worth it.  If you already have a wireless card then you can purchase a LAN card for a small amount of money ($20 US) and have both installed.

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that during the week, you have a laptop connected to your LAN at work and on the weekend you want to use wireless at home.  I have to ask:  how do you currently connect to your office LAN?  If this is a laptop, do you have a built in network card?  Or is it a PCMCIA card?  Also, many laptops built in the last 3 years have wireless adapters built in.

I guess I need more info.
Maybe he has a texas instrument laptop...you never know. =)
