Pocket Wireless Access Point

Last Modified: 2012-05-06
Id like to create a portable access point about the size of a usb thumb drive. The goal is to create a device that plugs directly into an Ethernet port and use that connection to become a wireless access point. It should be powered by the ethernet port.

So my question is has this how do I get started creating something like this? I'm thinking of using a small linux client paired with a wifi receiver.Where can i find these things?
