I currently own an Airport Express which works well with my Mac Book Pro but it doesn't work so well with my moms laptop. She has an old Windows XP with a Netgear 802.11g card which theoretically should work with my Airport Express but doesn't. She can, however, connect to the Netgear access point. The whole point behind this is because I'm planning to get a Airport Extreme but before I buy it I want to make sure it's compatible with her laptop. The odd thing is that, it can connect my Airport Express but only after it is connected to the Netgear access point. Has anyone had this sort of issue before? Feedback is appreciated.

we had issues with a netgear PCI card, updating the drivers resolved the issue. Could also be the security you're using, WPA +PSK can be touchy in XP.
