    Sure. AAUI is just a 10M Ethernet port without a tranceiver. So get
    a 10BaseT tranceiver for the port (they shouldn't be very expensive),
    and run a small Cat5 wire from that to an access point tranceiver.

    Yes. Several of the popular wireless access routers include
    LAN-facing Cat5 ports. If you have one with a single LAN port, you
    can attach a hub or switch to it (to allow more than one device to use
    the port). If you have one with more than one LAN port (typically
    models with a built-in switch), then you don't need an external
    hub/switch until you fill up all of its LAN ports.

    Just read the packaging closely before you buy, because there are some
    wireless access points that don't also have gateway router
    capabilities, and there may be some wireless routers that don't have
    wired LAN capability. You don't want to buy the wrong model by
    mistake.
