Depends if your wireless networkcard supports AP mode.
You will have to dive into the commandline to configure the wlan adapter since this is not a feature currently supported in servermanager.
Have a google search and you will come up with plenty ways how others have implemented a wireless networkcard as AP.
Feel free to report back if you are successful and how you managed to get it running.
