    Advice Req RE: What PCI Card for Airport/XP?

    I've got an iMac and I'm using an Airport. I've also got an XP box that has a Belkin 802.11g Wireless LAN PCI Card in it. The wireless performace is really choppy on the XP box. I think it's a compatibility issue because the Belkin and the PC behave themselves on my Netgear/Windows wireless network.

    Can anyone recommend another 802.11g Wireless LAN PCI Card. I've been told to get a D-Link but I'd rather hear from others what they recommend first.

    From what you have said I would try netgear first because your wireless AP is netgear

    Only on my PC wireless network. On my Apple wireless network it's an airport but I need to connect this XP box to it & the Belkin card in it doesn't seem to like the Airport.
