Firewire to USB

I need a dedicated USB port on my laptop for my USB Digital Audio adapter. I am looking for a device that will connect to my firewire port on my laptop and will provide USB port(s). Pixella offers just the opposite of what I am looking for, but the price is a bit steep. Any suggestions?

When people need that I use an USB PC-Card to add them.

That's it.

Unfortunately this is a laptop with no pcmcia ports that are available. I may need to remove my WIFI card and use my RJ45 connector and purchase a PCIMICA USB card?

Or install the USB PC-card and use USB WIFI dongle.

This is one strange or old laptop. Most come with at least 2 ports and wifi builtin. There's a thought. Maybe there is a miniPCI wifi card?
