I've just purchased an ibook clamshell 366 for my daughter, running 10.2.8. Can anyone suggest alternatives to an airport card and they are coming out v. expensive (ebay).
I looked at USB dongle's but they are 10.3 (tiger) and above and as the clamshell has a CD drive only I cannot install tiger as this is a DVD installation.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I recommend first upgrading to Panther on the clamshell. You can get a cd version cheap on ebay. And I've heard of usb adapters that will work with Macs:
Personally, I've never used this one before, but from the amazon reviews some people got it to work. Apparently you need to install these drivers (depending on the Belkin model you buy):
Again, the BEST wireless solution is the very expensive airport original card. If you're willing to risk it, buy the one from amazon.
