Re: WiFi and PC Card
According to the specs on your notebook, you already have a built in network card and a built in wireless G network card so you will not need to buy any extra hardware to add to your notebook to acess the internet.

Your card is ok. There is interference between the router and your computer.
1. The router or the PC may be "hidden" behind a metal cabinet, refrigerator, etc.
2. Move router higher
3. Microwave ovens and some cordless phones (not cellphones) that use 2.4GHz will interfere with the 2.4GHz WiFi signal.
4. Point the router antennas in-line with the direction of the PC.
5. Move the router closer to the PC.

Windows XP has a built in wifi configuration tool, previous versions of windows dont have this feature. But if you were to buy a wireless card it comes with software for wireless to work on all versions of windows from 98 - XP most if not all new laptops have wifi built in & that will be able to share your broadband connection through the netgear router. You can configure the laptop & pc to share files & printer between each other, easy way of doing that is by using the wireless network setup wizard which can be found in Start -> All Prograns -> Accessories -> Communications -> Wireless Network Setup Wizard.
