    I'm guessing your need either one of these cards:



    Most likely the upper & smaller "Airport Extreme" card. There are literally 100's of people on e-Bay selling these!

    Hope this helps,

    ya, you will need the smaller AirPort Extreme card. The larger one is simply called the Airport card, without the "extreme" attached, and is used on older Macs, before the USB 2.0 iMac G4's. Just type that in on eBay, and, like dtravis7 said, "literally hundreds" will appear.
