Any type 1 or type 2 PCMCIA or PCCARD (Not Express Card) should work fine. However, due to the age of your computer, I would buy the cheapest card that support WiFi G. Wifi G is not only faster, but has a stronger and more reliable signal over version B.
First turn the wireless.
There must be wireless button or switch in your computer.
And there must be led indicator of woreless.
And after your comuter will say that wireless networks were found.
Select one of them and connect.

Hi. Not enough information. Do you want a switch? Do you need to FIND a switch? Is it a Gateway notebook? The specifications for the Gateway Solo 5300 do not indicate a wireless system as part of the original unit. See: http://support.gateway.com/s/manlib/Notebooks/Solo5300/8508144/8508144.htm
Most units with PC100 memory (like this one) did not come with wireless. You will likely need a wireless PCMCIA card.
Try setting up a new network connection in the Network and Sharing Center. You'll need your info from your router like: router username: router password: network name (ssid): network security type: network security key: connection type: Some will also ask for a serial id(I've only ever come across one)
I've never used your particular brand of router but it ought to work the same way as far as the setup.
No one seems to be selling that particular part anymore, which laptop do you have? The Gateway Solo 9300? You may have to try to find an upgrade that's compatible as far as the motherboard connection is concerned.
Solo Series 9300 components are here.
Solo Series 9300VE components are here.
If you don't have a Solo 9300, you can look up your laptop model on Gateway's website; newer models can be found here and older models, also called "Legacy Notebooks," here.
You see that hole in it towards the front?. If you look underneath the laptop you should see a tray that looks like that with a screw in it. Just take the screw out and the whole caddy should slide right out.
Sounds like the cable is not securely connected to the motherboard.
I would doubt the OS is responsible for this problem.
Nice little machine, the service manual is available for download for free. Might give a shot at refastening the cable.
If you're not that enthusiastic about taking a laptop apart, possibly an external mouse?
Put XP back on. If you have enough memory, it runs just fine.
