    any wireless card should fit unless you have one of those weird thin towers. If you are worried it wont fit just get a wireless adapter that plugs into a usb port.

    yeah, its simply a standard pci card. plugs in like a soundcard or usb card. theyre very small, so the space used is minimal. like NSB, you could get a usb adapter and not have to open the case to get wireless. installing the pci card is painless though. no different then any other card

    its still card based. that screw in connector is wired into the mainboard most likely. its still a wireless card, its just not a seperate add on card.

    you will need to take the case off, then you just pop it into the pci slot and put the case back on. Takes about 2 minutes, tops. Im sure if you buy a card it will have a diagram to help the computer illiterate install it.

    routers just broadcast the internet signal from the modem.. you still need something to catch it, such as a pci based wireless card or a usb wireless adapter. those simply plug into a free usb port and receive the signal, but its not the best option

    id recommend PCI card over USB, get a card and if you can't install it just return it. i recently bought a linksys wireless card, it had directions on how to install the card, its pritty painless even for a newbie, just open the case (from the side ususaly) make a emply slot by taking out the metal thingy with a screw driver on the back and slid the card in sicure it with the screw you took out, then close the case. go for the PCI, you'll prolly have to learn how to put in other PCI cards in some time or anouther.
