I have a Toshiba P2 233MHz S4010CDS/4.0 Laptop with no network point on it. Could i buy this click here and would it fit in my Laptop to enable me to connect it via a Hub or Router to network it?

Yes, that network card should be OK.

I've use a 16 bit Netgear 10/100 PCMCIA card with a Toshiba 4030 and that worked OK - even though the laptop is very slow compared to current one's. You can also use a 16 bit 802.11b PCMCIA WiFi card.

The laptops going on a small network to enable me to test it with the possibility of it being used on the net. But will only be looking at a 56k modem as i dont think it's quick enough for broadband!

I think you are getting confused here. You would either connect the laptop directly to an ISP using a 56k dialup modem, or you would network it via a router and have the full speed of your broadband connection available. The laptop will be more than capable of using your broadband connection's speed over an ethernet connection, particularly as the card you linked to supports 100Mbps networking.

The PCMICA Card is so the laptop can go on a test network evaluating NOS etc. If it goes on the net it may just be on a 56k dial up connection just to get software updates.
