Which laptop card
There are only a few different types of card, because only a few high
frequency radio engineering places have got the skills to design equipment
that work at 2.4Ghz. A badging operation like Netgear certainly isn't going
to be able to do this.
So you need to choose the chipset - not the brand - and Martin is on the
nail with his recommendation of Orinoco. He is also right to suggest that
you should consider a USB adapter for flexibility, but only if you're
pushing the limits of the range (60+ feet).

So did anyone suggest good and bad PCMCIA wireless cards for laptops
Have seen ebuyer has one for £29.37 inc - 52627
is this any good?
Can't say, but what you really want is best sensitivity and transmission
it will in weak signal areas.
Orinoco has a reputation for best radio, deserved as far as I can tell.
BTW for static use you are better of with USB adapter on 1.2 m cord, much
easier to position for best signal,
sometimes half an inch can make all the difference.
