Yes, PCMCIA is the insertable card. Since you have an internal wireless card, you have to figure out what kind of chip you have in it. I don't know about this since I am still trying to get my PCMCIA card to work.

But if you post the kind of chipset it has maybe someone else can help you to configure it.
