Perhaps in the unusual case where all it's clients are similarly well endowed.
An AP with the best receive sensitivity (and a well chosen antennae) will
provide the best range for normal clients.
There are cards that might meet your criteria. Ath(4) have very good receive
sensitivity but I have not yet seen 11g hostap work. You could settle for 11b
and hope the situation improves. Ral(4) have awful receive sensitivity but do
11g hostap really well.
If you need 11g hostap and more range than a ral(4) can provide you could add
more AP's and read up on hostapd(8).
