Question

Can I use a wireless PCI card manufacutred by a PC vendor with my B&W G3? I'm thinking of picking up a wireless card for my B&W (D-Link, Belkin, Linksys) whatever's on deal, is this something Panther 10.3.5 will recognize or will I require third party software for my AEBS to recognize the card?

Some work. I got a Micro$oft MN-730 working in my B&W (that Moonsocket now has!) and it worked great.

Most of the ones that I've heard of are based on the Broadcom chipset. Some work right out of the box, others require some software modifications.

There is some discussion over at www.xlr8yourmac.com

Works! Inserted the Linksys card, rebooted and just like that all systems go! AirPort bars came up in the menu bar choose my network and all works! Excellent.
