Wireless Ability. . .

I have an older laptop (Toshiba Tecra 8000). My wife is a pharamceutical rep and has the latest notebook computer.

We have her machine hooked-up to a wireless point router. Her machine has something internal that allows her to go wireless. What do I need? I have a network card slot if that makes any difference.

Thanks,

You'll need a USB or PCMCIA wireless network adapter. Should run about $70. I prefer Lynksys, but other brands should work also.

That should work just fine. A PCMCIA version may be more convinient though in case you go to Starbucks and want to browse the web.
