you would need to supply the lan card usb adapter model number if you want exact information

your card should have come with a wireless utility in addition to the driver that allows you to imput the wep encryption number so you can log in (this number was set when you first set up the airport extreme, using the admin utility on one of the MACs)

You may also need to update the firmware on your airport extreme--the original one did not work well with windows and there was at least one firmware update, available from the APPLE support pages
