    I know, I know. All 802.11b and 802.11g cards should work fine..

    BUT!

    And this is a big but!

    I'm paranoid. This is due to the fact the internal a+b+g mini-PCI Module isn't picking up the base station's signal at all. I have a free PC card free and I'm thinking if I can get a new card maybe the compatibility issues will be resolved.

    So, has anyone tried networking PC labtops with Apple Base Stations much and found any paticular card/brand to be of note? :)

    People have connected to my AE network with a variety of cards. I know you don't want to hear 802.11 is 802.11 is 802.11, but it is. I would look at the configuration.
