    I just got a new Dell Latitude D600 and I was gonna hook up a wireless network in the house, but I cannot figure out if the card that came in the computer (Dell TrueMobile 1300 WLAN Mini-PCI Card) is an "a", "b", or "g" wireless card. Does anyone have a new Dell and know what it is? Thanks

This card delivers maximum channel speed of up to 54 Mbps while maintaining interoperability within the 2.4 GHz band with full backward compatibility to 802.11b networks.

    So you can either use a 802.11b, or 802.11g depending on what router you have.

    yes I would recommend the Netgear router. I have a 802.11b one (Model # MR814) and it works flawlessly. :bigthumb:

    The only differences in the B and G would be the speeds over your network. The internet speeds wont change, but if you can grab a G, go for it.
