Hey there...

It should not be hard at all. Since both your devices are from Linksys, this will make it easier.

Go into the Wireless Network Properties of your wireless pc card and change the encryption to WPA, (in the Security tab), encryption type AES.
Make sure you have the correct network security key (passphrase) that matches the one to your router.

What you could also do is go the linksys ws and get the latest driver/firmware for the router and/or the pc card.

Hope that helps...
