That would be incorrect . You CAN get a 108Mbps mini-pci card for your laptop .. Easiest way is to just order from eBay ..http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...sPageName=WDVWhttp://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...sPageName=WDVW
Also some routers and desktop wireless cards actually have a mini-pci board on them under a metal cover .. You can remove the card from it and actually use it in your laptop .. You just have to make sure it has the antenna connectors and you cana get drivers for the chipset its using .. I've seen people do this with DLink prodicts ..
