    I have managed to connect my laptop via an 11b wireless LAN NIC PCMCIA card,
    and all is well until generally while browsing te net, but if I try and
    download large files, or view a video off the net then after a short while
    the machine just freezes and has to be turned off.

    It is a fairly old laptop, celeron 400, 64m etc, but is quite capable of
    these operation when connected directly vai usb adsl modem.

    Help please, this is getting very frustrating

    Thanks for that, but the machine is capable of these things while directly
    connected via a USB ADSL modem. Dont expect the thing to fly, but I also
    dont expect it to freeze
