I have an existing wireless network with a Netgear 108mps wireless router.  I tried adding a Airport base station.  My Pc's detected the base station but my G4 did not.  The G4 is in another room using an Airport card.  I am not getting any signal strength on the G4.  I thought that maybe the 2 routers may be interfering with each other so I tried only connecting the Airport base station to my cable modem.  My Pc's picked it up but I was not able to get on the web.  Can these 2 devices work together in the same area?  Does my Mac need an external antennae?
