I'm shopping for a PDA to use as a laptop replacement for short trips and meetings where I don't need the power of a laptop. The Sony Clie TH55 fits most of the bill. It has WiFi except most meeting rooms, hotel rooms, and business offices I visit don't have WiFi. But most places have a LAN and ethernet jack into which I have been plugging in my laptop.
Can I just plug a wifi router into the LAN and the PDA will have connection to the LAN and Internet? I'm assuming the RJ45 socket in the client's office is coming from a router elsewhere in the building, can I just daisy chain another router (this time a wifi one)? Anyone have any success with daisy chaining routers?
The wifi router I'm looking at is a netgear one that is relatively small and light, about the size of pocket book, so am willing to carry that around.
Thanks for any advice.

Will this work? Router --> wireless router --> PDA with wifi?
