You can look around on netgate.com for some supported wireless cards
One thing you should be warned about in regards to a soekris box is
that you should NOT get a "vpn" card. These "hardware crypto
acceleration" cards do nothing but break ssh connections whenever
they are used, at least with openbsd. I suggest you look at the
soekris list archives and search for vpn1411... you'll find that
quite a few users got this card thinking it would improve things but
instead found the contrary.
The soekris box you choose depends... I suggest not getting one with
a pci slot - it's really not very useful and there are many mini-pci
cards that handle the wireless work just fine.
