A neighbour has asked me to connect his new service. I need to get him a wireless card for his desktop PC.

I'm not sure which one's sutable - can you please recommend one, preferably from PC World or Maplin?

Much easier with a wireless dongle like this.

Thanks but I forgot to mention that his USB ports are dodgy, to say the least, which is why I wanted a card.

Everyone has a favourite but i have found the pci card to be more reliable and less prone to damage than the usb dongle.
Make sure there is a spare pci slot before buying,
Virtually any pci card will work although check it is vista compatable if running Vista,is the chaps router 54mbs or the newer 108mbs,just find card to suit.
The famous auction site is ideal for these cards.

Looks like is has every security setting and has a vista driver
