I have not tried <http://www.linuxdevices.com/articles/AT5073214560.html>
but it seems like a good start. I would also consider weatherproofing an 
USB 802.11b WLAN adapter (hotglue might be enough, don't cover the 
antenna), as it allows you to position the module up to 5 m away from the 
box (which thus doesn't need weatherproofing).

If you want to go solid state (why having a CD ROM?), you should check out

Sounds like a very useful, cool project.
