Do you already have a "Live box" from Wanadoo? This allows you to have a wireless connection to your p.c as well as your new laptop, if you get one. I have one and it works well for the p.c but the signal strength to my new Dell laptop is very sensative to where I am in the house. Before I bought the Dell I phoned Wanadoo to make sure the wireless card that came with it was suitable. I think as long as it does 802.11g it should be fine.
