What browser are you using?  

(I am not sure it's due to the external wireless card).

The message indicates that you are going to a secure site.  HTTPS.  This does not really have anything to do with the network card.

Here are the possibilities:

1. The site is NOT a secure site requiring a certificate
2. The site has an expired certificate
3. The certificate does not match the URL you are putting in the address bar
4. You need to look at your browsers security settings

I do not have Chrome at my office so I can't check for you.

The default IE with XP SP3 IE 7 or 8 - not sure

Are you really used to Internet Explorer? I would suggest you try with Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox. You will forget Internet Explorer.

Google Chrome comes with in built Flash.

Try Opera (12.16) or the newer Opera 15,16,17...
