I'm using an airport express card in my powerbook 15" 1.25Ghz. I  
don't have any probs watching video, except if someone is using the  
airport express it gets choppy like it cant hold enough video for a  
live stream.  Works fine on my computer, but my brother's Tibook with  
a 802.11b airport card doesn't work so well (choppy).

might recommend checking your network throughput, to see how much you  

The freezing thing might be your crappy Netgear card ;)  Those things  
are so flaky, lol..
