trying to network my laptop

I have a Toshiba 460CDT. It contains win2000pro, Pentium 166, 64 Meg ram.
I want to connect it to my existing home network. The laptop has a Etherlink III LAN PC Card (for 10BASE-T) installed in it. Will this work for connecting to my Linksys (4-port router) home network? Or do I need a different card?

It should work fine on your home network. If the network is setup already, just plug in the cat5 cable to the router and your laptop. In start, settings, control panel, click on network. Select use DHCP, make sure the workgroup name is the same for all computers to share files, turn off use WINS to resolve DNS. Click OK out and restart the computer if needed.

When the computer restarts, you should be on. Use your wizard to set a LAN connection, the same as you did with the other computer.

Hope this helps.
