I have an old Linksys Wireless-G router that is hard-wired to my main computer and another computer a few rooms away with a wireless PCI card and I have another laptop that I want to add to the network and I want to make it wireless too, can I use a Belkin or Netgear or whatever wireless pcmcia card or do I have to use a Linksys?

Thanks for any info :thumbsup:

There should be no problem in doing that, The only concern would be that the oldest hardware may not be able to communicate with the newer hardware. However if the hardware is not that old it should be fine.
