    Please excuse my ignorance.. but i've always used ethernet on my PowerMac G4, so am quite unfamiliar with wireless setups on Mac.

    Anyway, I have an MBP 2.0 on order to use mainly at work, where it is a purely PC based network. I will be moving around quite a bit so desperately need a wireless connection. They are using a Netgear DG632 Modem/Router..

    Will my stock MBP be able to login to this network, or do i need to purchase Airport/Airport Express? What would i need to be able to go wireless on a PC based network??

    Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Thanks again

    All of the networking protocols available on PCs and Macs are standards based, so there's no vendor lock in. In theory it should all be interchangeable, and in practice it is (although there are the odd problems, but both Apple and Netgear make good networking products, so you won't have a problem).
