I'm looking to get a wireless card for my wife's laptop. We just upgraded the router to the Linksys WRT54g2 this weekend, and the old wireless card is being a pain in the ass (it's over 3 years old).

Is there anyones you guys would recommend?

Thanks in advance.

Stick with the Linksys network adapters. I've never had a problem with their equipment,I like matching cards with WAP's, and the whole shebang is part of the Cisco family.

I was looking at this one:
Amazon.com: Linksys WUSB54GC Compact Wireless-G USB Adapter: Electronics

I'm mildly concerned with the 1 star reviews.

I'm not a big fan of USB network cards. Do you have a PC Card slot free?

If so... link (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000C77B4O/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top)

Is this the same one as the ones both of you are recommending?

If so, this is a steal.

I got the one you guys suggested. Amazon wanted 72, but the marketplace suppliers wanted 19.95 for a brand new one.

Thanks for all your help, gentlemen.
