Hands-on equipment vs. GNS3

Hands-on equipment is always better, but for those eating beans and rice because of a super-tight budget, "virtual" may be the only option. Has anyone used GNS3 to study wireless? And I understand the program is free, but finding the IOS for it can be daunting. True?

    Finding IOS is not daunting at all.

    Using GNS for wireless, i never heard of it. I dont believe GNS can emulate a wireless lan controller or an access point. Your going to have to spend some money for this track.
