    it can be done but you must have the right card. MarvelSoftAP is one piece of software that works with some cards.

    Overall, it is not a recommended approach. If you are using Win2k8 for routing, it's recommended that you use a 10/100/1000 ethernet card and a discrete AP. Something like a WRT54Gv4 would be very cheap and with dd::wrt firmware will even support radius servers and other features that will integrate well with your 2k8 box.
