Network cards

I am thinking of going wireless. I know my laptop has a network card but my desktop has not. Do i need to buy the same network card as my laptop for my desktop pc or can i get a USB adapter of a different company for my PC.

also what is this 802.11g/b stuff. I know its to so with speed and that 802.11g is better but i read somewhere to get Netgear's Super G technology because it can reach speeds of 108Mbps. Also is these speeds realted to the network card or router?

To get the rated speed, the cards on both ends of a connection, plus the router would need to support the same speed (e.g. 802.11g).

But even then it depends what you are going to use it for. If it is primarily for web downloads etc. then b (let alone g) should suffice.

with BT type speeds of around,give or take,about 3 and 8mb all the rest is a bit academic. :-))
