Ok I went to RadioShack today, looking for an internal wireless card, but they did not have any internal wireless cards, so I ended up getting a Netgear Wireless-G USB 2.0 Adapter. It is 54 Mbps, 2.4 GHz, and 802.11g. But it seems kind of slow and it shows my network signal strength as 90%. When I am downloading games on Steam they only download at 30-60 KB/S, and on my laptop they will download at 100-1000 KB/s. I do not use the Netgear wireless usb adapter on my laptop, is use an internal wirelesscard that came built into it. Is that because my network has WEP? I am using a 2WIRE router, is there any way I can boost my signal or make it faster?
