Can I connect a 2.4G Wireless cam to my Laptop´s Wifi? Answered

I want to receive my wireless 2,4G battery powered camera with my laptop without using the receiver for home use,
because this one needs externel power connection. My laptop (IBM Thinkpad T41) has a 2.4G Wifi mini PCI-card with IEEE 802.11 a/b/g.
Is there any way to connect the camera to my laptop without using this external receiver?
Thanks a lot,


I don't think so, its usually a completely different protocol.

Agreed. You keep beating me to it on the easy ones!

the frequency band is the same but one speaks 802.11 wifi and the other 'whatever it wants because its a camera'. Unless it is a wifi IP camera, it won't work.
