    if you have the rj45 jack in the laptop you don't need that card
    your going the wrong way
    backup
    thats not an air card

    This is confusing... Robgamer :) Are you saying that you want wireless instead of wired networking from your laptop?

    If you want wireless, that is the wrong card.
    If your lappy does NOT have a RJ45 networking port (unlikely, unless it's really old), then go and get it.

    Sorry Im just trying to get my laptop to be wireless without having to open it up or using a usb adapter. Is there any other way to do that?

    He dosen't have a PCMCIA slot on his laptop does he? USB adapter is his only option, if he doesn't have a NIC port either
