Just as long as the laptop has wireless 11.b or 11.g it should work, altho it wont go at 11.n speed. (which sounds like its this new Wireless-N).

Thanks for the replies. How do I find out if my laptop has wireless 11.b or 11.g ?
My Dell laptop is a Inspiron 9400 about 6 months old

Look in device manager for a wireless entry, (maybe under network adapters, it may show b or g i dont know), or look on the taskbar.

See if theres something like an ((())) icon or something similar. Looks like it may have g.
