Has anybody here used a wireless PCMCIA card with WfWg 3.11?

I don't have the card yet. I won't buy until I know there's a driver I  
can use. I think I need a 16-bit PCMCIA card, not a 32-bit CardBus  
card. Such cards exist, but I haven't found any with DOS or Win3  
drivers. The only PCMCIA network drivers I've found for Win3 or DOS are  
for wired cards. 

What's the smallest WiFi access point available? Instead of wiring the  
laptop directly to the network hub, I could wire it to a wireless  
access point near the laptop.... 

Why can't the functions of the wired card (with a WfWg3.11 driver) and  
the wireless access point be built into one card?
