802.1x compliant usb wifi nic and wifi bridge

hi ,
I am looking for some USB WIFI NIC which would work with 802.1x authentication...
I am also looking for a WIFI Bridge with at least 3 LAN ports supporting 802.1x...

Many thanks...

here's the USB card: http://www.3com.com/products/en_US/detail.jsp?tab=features&pathtype=purchase&sku=3CRUSBN175
a bit pricey I guess, but more or less state of the art.
bridge: http://www.3com.com/prod/en_EU_EMEA/detail.jsp?tab=prodspec&sku=3CRWE876075 (but only 1 x LAN port)
here's another: http://www.cisco.com/cisco/web/solutions/small_business/products/wireless/ap_500/index.html
still --- only one LAN port. Found none with 4 ports ... :-(

Hi ,
thanks for the quick feedback , do you reckon the 3com 8760 would work like a bridge or just as an access point?
I need this unit to connect to existing WIFI with 802.1x...

the 3com USB WIFI NIC is spot on..

from the data sheet:
WDS bridge and repeater Multiple APs can function as bridges supporting point-to-point or multiconfiguration
point modes; repeater mode extends wireless coverage
