Find a real Apple Airport Extreme card (normally ~$50 on eBay). Well worth the money & I guarantee it will work much better than the netgear one.

No drivers are required for this - the Netgear card will work with third party drivers (best avoided).

Thanks that sound like a good idea but I haven't a clue how to install it, the netgear is plug and play - I hope
