Hi Peter,

The avaya/proxim/orinoco AP2000 would do this no problems - I have some 
second hand units available however they only have 802.11B cards with 
the (a G kit is available form them though). We've been trialing them 
here for our local community LAN with WDS running between 3 of them 
seamlessly. If you don't need the extra speed of G then let me know and 
I can help you out with an immediate solution (for a low price too!)
