I've had my laptop for almost 2 years. In that time I have damaged the onboard ethernet port.

I've gotten around the problem by tilting the cable up a bit and getting a network connection.

But I need another solution, and one that does not require an Airport card and station.

I have tried a USB network adapter, but found that OS 10.2.6 gave me no method of using it.

Is there a USB network adapter out there that I can use?

I've looked around at a variety of Brands: Linksys, D-Link, SMC to name a few. None of them support mac.

An Apple support tech suggested Farallon Ind., but they have been bought out by a Wireless company and the Farallon product isn't available.

Any ideas?

I guess, eBay?

Are you sure that Linksys doesn't support macintosh? Because I use a few Linksys products.

Does that iBook have a Firewire port ( I can't rem the stats of that book very well ) Because there may be a way to get a firewire internet connection.

There are no drivers on the Linksys website. And I think I read somewhere there was no support for Mac.

I haven't seen anything for firewire either.

If you have another machine with a firewire port you could use IP over firewire. Im not sure how apple has implemented it in os x (as i have never tried it), but I have used it in windows between two machines that move data frequently.

Ok, I have a PC with a firewire port and the network connection. Ideally, it would be great if I could connect to the net via the firewire but I have a feeling that if it worked, the PC would just treat the iBook as another drive.

Never the less, it would be faster than trading files with a USB zip drive.

like i said, i have never tried it between mac and PC, but from PC to PC it works like a charm.
