None of the computers I want to hook up have wireless cards. Is this
possible? Suggestions to get it work?

Yes, this is easily possible.

There are even multiple ways to achieve this. An easy is to procure an
Access Point that is able to work in "Client Mode". This is a purely
software based feature, but not all have it, especially budget models
do not. There are also "Wireless to Ethernet" Bridges available, they
are essentially the same thing, except that you can't reconfigure them
to use as an access point at a later date. This would cost something
around 50-200$, depending on the model and speed you want.

Depending on the level of professionality you want in this setup, the
method above might not be the best way. For a professional WIFI
deployment, you need a line of sight, two directional antennas, and
two non-soho access points that support wireless bridge mode. This
would cost something around 1500-2500$.
