Using a laptop as a wifi server/router/AP

Hello, could anybody tell me if it is possible to set up a laptop as a wireless server (not adhoc connection) and if so how?

Unless you plug a "Wireless Access Point" into the laptop's RJ45 ethernet port to create an "Infrastructure" network, then you would have to use an "Ad Hoc" wireless network. A stand alone Wireless Access Point usually costs about as much as a wireless router (which of course incorporates a Wireless Access Point), so unless you go with an Ad Hoc network, you should use a router.
