Hello pig86

Your router is uses the 802.11b wireless standard. You can use a PC card that works w/ 802.11g or 802.11b. Those that are compatible w/ the 802.11g standard are also "backward compatible". In other words, they will also work w/ the older 802.11b wireless standard.

You don't have to purchase a PC card made by the same manufacturer as your router. You can mix and match manufacturers of your networking hardware/equipment just fine. They all adhere to the same industry standards.

As for choosing a specific PC card for your laptop, we'll need to know the make (manufacturer) and model of your laptop.

We will also need to know what operating system your are running on your laptop. (We want to make sure that drivers would be available for the PC card when running w/ your operating system.)

If you'd like us to help you w/ that, just post back here w/ that information and we'll be happy to.

For documentation on your router, please, go HERE.

    Make sure you purchase the correct PCMCIA type PC card for your computer.



    If you're not sure what type your laptop supports, you can check the documentation on your laptop (usually available on the manufacturer's web site).



    If you'd like help w/ that, just let us know.

Cannot access my wireless network


Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

Wep key how do i find it


The WEP encryption key is in your router's wireless settings. Log into your router and got to the wireless settings, you will need to get the SSID and the WEP key. Then go to your computer/laptop's wireless card and configure it with the router's SSID and WEP key, so it will then connect to the wireless router and the Internet.
