I've done exactly this--I used Linksys wireles access points, which
basically just "bridged" the network when there couldn't be a physical
link. We have four or five classrooms working this way in an old
Catholic High School where the walls were too thick! We were able to
get 8 workstations working fine off an access point, with only the
"boot" up showing signs of slowness.
