Default Help choosing a wireless card

Well I need to buy a wireless card for my new laptop, and im wondering which one to buy. I got to two houses, and one house has a linksys router, while the other one has a 2Wire router. Will a card work for both of those? I have a dell latitude with windows 2k, and im upgrading to xp soon. If you need anything else just ask. Thanks for the help.
