Would this work

I would get a pcima rather than the usb. The wg111 only supports wep which is not very sercure. The wg111 is intended for use in networks with out an access point (ad-hoc). However if you are not that worryied about sercuity and/or the wireless signal won't get outside your house it is fine.

likely, The correct name is pcmcia (or pc card) not pcima so f you use that name it should stop any future confusion

Pcmcia are small credit card sized devices that usually plug in the side of a laptop (they usually have 2 slots (possible covered) to support 2 pcmcia cards or 1 double size cardbus card).

And extreme17 thinking you are talking about a pci card due to your incorrect name for pcmcia.

PCMCIA aka 'PC Card' slot is the credit-card sized slots commonly found on laptops.

PCI is the white expansion port on desktop computer motherboards.
