first of all you need to check with your internet provider to see what modem you can use. a wirless 802.11g card (the farthest range) if your provider has a wirless modem i would get it from them. and a wirless modem/router. i use bellsouth wirless dsl and bought the equipment from them. if you have a wirless modem/ router already then you just need the card and configure it.
Here is a link to the linksys website. I have already found most of what you need for this product WPC54g. Look on the label of the product and you should see the version which the below page is refering to. http://www.linksysbycisco.com/US/en/support/WPC54G/download
