    Ok so I have an airport bastation.

    I also have 3 pcs in the house and my iBook.
    PC 1 has the cable modem and a network card that goes to my little cheapo dlink router. Which then branches off to connect the two upstairs PC and the airport basestation.

    Tonight for some reason my PC in my room would not connect to the net anymore and when it did I was getting dns errors for almost every site....Im not sure what cause it to happen all of a sudden as I was surfing fine minutes before.

    So now im just thinking of adding a wireless network card to my PC and having it connect to the basestation to get network info, is this possible?

    Im thinking about getting one of These

    Will that work ok with the airport base station?

    I have no idea why the dns errors started up all of a sudden I have had the setup for weeks now :mad:

    any card that is 802.11b sould work whith the ariport.

    The problems your having sound lstrange. Have you cheded all your TCP/IP settings on your PC? ... have you cheded the routher settings? Make sure that the name server (DNS) settings are all correct. Does your router use DHCP to grab IP adresses from your ISP? Some do not. My IP adress is Staic for about 3-6 mounths.. then they change it. Maybe your ISP changed something like your IP or your DNS on you and your router did not react.
