[ubuntu-uk] Portable wireless network.?

I'm not actually sure what I should be asking here, but I would like to be
able to set up a laptop as a server running questionnaires (created with
StatPac) that need a cgi-bin folder to run a perl script.

I would then like to allow people to access the questionnaire from their
laptops via a wireless connection to the laptop/server. Everyone would be
in the same room.

I see there are things called portable wireless routers, is this as simple
as installing a Ubuntu server version on the laptop, and plugging in the
router. Then letting the users find the wireless connection.

Can anyone advise on what sort of problems I might have, and suggest a low
cost wireless router that might suit. I also see their are wireless NASs
and wondered if that might provide an alternative approach.

I will obviously need to read up a bit (a lot) about setting up a network,
but I would appreciate any comments that will highlight any key issues I
would need to consider.

Many thanks,
