ipw2100 doesn't support the master mode, so it will not be able to be used as an ap. Perhaps you can create an ad-hoc mode setup. I haven't tried this but I think the ipw2100 should be able to do it.

If you have a broadband modem then get one that acts a wireless router. This is the simplest and probably the most expensive option. It should work ok.
