    Wireless on Lombard
    I was wondering if anyone knows if any of the current models of wireless cards will work on a Powerbook G3 Lombards PCMCIA slot, preferably in OS 9. Or whether the USB can be used for wireless internet.

    Thanks

    Any standard airport card should work, such as the one that fits in almost all iBooks, powerbook g3s and early powerbook g4s
    Yes my name is Jaguar.
    No, it is not a joke.
    I don't find your "I'm a cheetah." joke funny.

    I've looked at that, and the Pismo is the first powerbook to support the airport card. The lombard does not support it unfortunately.

    I don't remember for sure but a Wavelan Silver or Gold might work. That card is great for a hack to use in a Clamshell or slot-load iMac (with an adapter), for example.

    That's what the card looks like, they're on eBay for about $10-20 but sometimes Craigslist will have an airport card for around $30.
