Posted: Hey there
Yeh you need a PCI card that slots in the side, they cost anything from 30-60 squid.
If the router is setup and connected to the net - all you have to do is install the PCI card and it should pick up itself.
If you leave all network settings as "default" ie let windows configure itself you will not hace to mess about with any settings...... if you currently have another network the laptop is for then post back and ill dig out some how toos!

Posted: What strugz said, but it's a PCMCIA card you're after - might help you find the right one.
I've found Belkin to be the best over the past few years.
There's too many home fires burning and not enough trees
Posted: all access speeds are under best conditions, g won't always be 55mbs, especially in an office or apparentment block where there's interferance from other networks. Most g access points will allow connections from b cards (at upto 11mbps), not sure if the otehr way round applies. G is so cheap thou, the last wireless access point i bought had adsl modem/usb print server built in for 44.99 (exc). Like many computer components there's not many manufacturers of wireless products (3com do make their own stuff, not sure about belkin). I've been buying from safecom at home/work. It's DIRT cheap, but all just rebadged orinoco stuff.
