      As far as I know, there isn't one. I believe Sky sells a Netgear USB wireless adaptor, although it is actually cheaper to get it elsewhere. All you need really, is a wireless network card that support the 802.11g standard (sometimes referred to as Wireless-G).

      That said, if there's any way of running an Ethernet cable between the router and the PC, that would be preferable to using wireless networking. Wireless networking is often quite unreliable.

      PCI is a good choice for reception strength, usually.

      For simplicity's sake and good after sales support the Netgear WG311 model (same terminology as the router).

      But there are lots cheaper -- I also use a Dynamode which works pretty well. They have a UK website (though nothing like the Netgear one which has a 24/7 user forum).
