Does my 15" G4 866mhz powerbook take airport card or airport extreme ?

Also can I use my Linksys PCMIA laptop wireless card ? I plugged it into the powerbook but it says "unknown vendor" . I just switched to MAC so im a super noob.. LOL

You would need the original AirPort Card.

Some third party cards will work, though from my own experience and from what I know of others, it is touch and go. Some work fine, others don't. Your best bet would be to just search eBay or the resellers for an original AirPort Card IMO.

good luck with your airport card purchase... They go for around $100 on ebay.
