Need info on wireless access points

Thanks for reading this.

My sister has moved into elderly housing, and she's in need of an 
internet connection. She has a neighbor who's willing to share a WiFi 
setup, and thus she needs an access point that can be used as a client.

I'm looking at the Linksys WAP54G, since I believe it can be set to use 
only one antenna, and that's important because it might take a "pringles 
can" antenna to make it from my sister's apartment to her neighbor's 
house. I've used a WAP54B in the past, and liked the ease-of-use.

Please tell me if the Linksys WAP54G is suitable, or if you prefer a 
different model, and why. If the various Linksys routers, such as the 
WRT54G, can do the same job, I need to know that too.
