    MacBookPro1,1 15" 1.83GHz
    MacBookPro1,1 wireless not working--options?
    My wireless hasn't been working, even though my computer can see the various wireless networks. When I type in the password, the wheel thing spins and then it says "Connection Timeout." I am trying to connect to internet at cafes.

    Should I buy a USB wireless card (seems like a good price if it works) or replace the wireless card (more expensive but maybe more convenient?)? The Addlogix USB 2.0 Wireless (IEEE 802.11b/g) Adapter (MA-WL-USB) seems to be the right thing to use if I don't replace the wireless card, but some users have said it doesn't work well with OS 10.5.7.

    I don't know technical stuff, so if you can use idiot/simple language, that would be great. Thanks!
