Network Connection Problems

I have sky broadband which is running ok on the pc which is connected to (through the yellow wires). I am having problems connecting my 2nd PC wirelessly to this broadband. I am using Belkin Wireless Network Card F5D6001, sky broadband is WPA-PSK and I am using Windows XP.

Do you think that I have an old version of the Wireless Network card? Can I download the drivers or need to get a new version of the card? If I need a new card? Then whats the best in the market?

Thanks

Is access control switched on? Switch off all security features until you can get the 2nd pc to connect and then enable them again.

Belkin F5D6001 is an 802.11 b card that doesn't support WPA-PSK.
Suggest your best bet is to upgrade to a 802.11g card that does. Make sure it supports WPA-PSK.
In the Belkin range something like an F5D7050 would be fine.
