How do I add an additional laptop to browse the internet?

If you mean to your home network you could use either a router or a hub. With a hub you can connect a cable to access the internet. With a wireless router you can use a wireless card in the laptop as well and use the laptop anywhere in the house.

Router issues in my apartment.

When to moved into the penthouse, there are more walls between the wireless router and the laptop in the bedroom. The walls are probably reinforced concrete walls which will stop or weaken the radio waves penetrating into different rooms. When you lived in a house this was not a problem.
The only way to solve this problem is to move the wireless router near an opening such as a door and move the laptop as close as possible to the wireless router to get a better signal strength.
The outer way is to install a wireless repeater or connect a long network cable to the router and the laptop.

Hi Terry,

I believe it was the following...

Realtek Semiconductor Corp - Networking - TRENDnet TEW-421PC/TEW-423PI 802.11g Wireless Cardbus/PCI Adapter
Installation date: ‎2/‎5/‎2008 12:07 PM
Installation status: Successful
Update type: Optional
Realtek Semiconductor Corp Networking software update released in October, 2007
More information:
Help and Support:

I just checked on Microsofts Windows Update again, and there is another optional update for the Realtek. This only partially fixed my problem - we've also had to adjust the channel our wireless DSL router uses; our cordless phone was interferring with my signal. Now that I've adjusted the channel on the router, I haven't dropped my signal once in more than 3 days. Good luck. Hope this helps.

Fatal Exceptions

Is this a new device? A lot of newer wireless adaptors come with drivers for NTFS based operating systems such as windows 2k or XP. Windows 98 runs on FAT32. I don't know if this will work. I suggest you upgrade your OS.
