Any Linksys PC card should work....

See the network diagram for your particular router model.

PCMCIA and PC card are interchangable terms. You need a Linksys WPC11 card. These are well under $100 CDN.

Make sure that your laptop is either 802.11b or 802.11g. If it is 802.11a, you may be out of luck as the router may not support the a standard.

PCMCIA is an old standard, supported as a backward-compatibility measure by PC Card slots.  PCMCIA interface is only 8 data bits wide, and tops out at a much lower bandwidth than PC Card.  That's why modern devices are all PC Card, and PCMCIA is only legacy devices.

Hi Isha,
  In concern to the card that you might use for the AP.
 You can go in for a "PRISM" chipset card or "hermis II" Chipset.
 Most of the branded AP use these chipsset cards .
  You can use Orinoco classic gold-------------Model:8410 ...it has "hermis II" .
