That should work pretty well. I have a Linksys wireless router and the network card thats in my laptop isn't Linksys and it still connnects to my network without any issues.

Yeah man, wireless network components are compatible with one another, regardless of brand. We have all Linksys routers in my house, I have a Belkin USB wireless adapter, and my sister has a D-Link. My bro's Mac works flawlessly, so does my sister's boyfriend's laptop, and any other wireless device on the network. You'll be just fine.

like they said yea itll work between different cards and routers, BUT you may have a problem with the range.... 100ft, thats pretty far... u may have problems keeping a connection. and you may need to buy a Booster to stay connect, im not sure tho maybe the router is powerful enough. just sumthin for you to think about if you cant connect for some reason its prolly cuz your too far from the router :)

Nah, 100ft will be fine with a wireless G router. Heck, even my old Wireless B could (albeit barely) reach that far.

Indeed, puting in a Cat5 cable would the best (although maybe not the most feasable) idea.
