Default wireless ethernet

Is there anyway of connecting a wireless device directly to a laptop's ethernet port for wireless internet access? Or does a wireless connection have to go through either the USB or PCMCIA/expansion slots on a laptop?

Unless I'm missing the point of your question .... the whole point of wireless access is that there are NO wires.

If you have a wireless router with built in ethernet ports you could always take a CAT5 from the router to the laptop - other than that I don't know.
