    Access points generally are OS-Independent, as they run off of their own firmware.

    An Access Point (ie: Linksys) would be equal to a router. These devices do not require local desktop drivers to operate.

    Most of them have internal firmware to communicate with the network. They are typically programed using a web interface.

    For supported PCI/PCMCIA wireless devices, i would suggest the Linux hardware compatibility lists.
