Hi there!

I have a 3-year-old Powerbook G4. My landlord just installed highspeed internet access in the building. With his new MacBook he is getting almost 9,000 MBS !!

I'm only getting 1,500. I think it's because I have an older airport card that is not "n" ?

Question: Can i upgrade my airport card?

Thanks!

I haven't seen the new AirPort cards anywhere leaving me to believe it's not really card but more of a module built into the logic board.
If there is a card, I would suspect it uses a different connection. The original AirPort card wouldn't fit in your PB because the connection is completely different.

Maybe you can find a USB dongle with "N" support.
