Xircom is name of the manufaturer . Tjis company is now taken over by Intel . They where into networking  products .

By Xircom Card you probably mean a network PCMCIA card from Xircom . On your laptop you can use it for interconnecting your laptop to a LAN network . It can be any other card , so you need to find more details .

Yep, xircom is just a brand.  They make PCMCIA networking cards and modems. They were one of the first to not use dongle.
