PC slot wireless solution for old 400Mhz Titanium PBook?
Posted by: john-o

Subject says it all... Anyone know of a (relatively) cheap option for such a thing? Original AP cards are still just too expensive, imho. I've seen 'em for as little as $90, but I know there ought to be options at around half that. I'm aware of the USB and Ethernet wireless adapters are an option, but thought I'd see if anyone here has seen a PC-slot option that's reasonable, since that machine has such a slot…

TIA,
John

I have the same Ti 'book and someone from the other place recommended the Motorola WN825G. I did an ebay search and found plenty there. About $20. IIRC and it works fantastic without any drivers. Plug and play.


Edit: Try this link

Heh! I think we had this discussion a few years ago at that other place.

I agree, good link. Great price for a card which works natively with the Mac. WPA. Solid.
