    Powerbook G3 Stats:

    OS: 10.1.5
    Model #: M5343

    I have really been looking into wireless PCI cards for my powerbook lombard, lately I have been to http://wirelessdriver.sourceforge.net/faq.html#panic which supplied free drivers for certain wireless cards. I checked the list and then searched all of the computers stores around me and finally found the Linksys WPC-11 Wireless B, v.4 card. I downloaded the driver and it didn't work. So I began searching around wondering why it wasn't working and found out that the version 4 of this linksys card isn't supported due to a different chipset.

    So now my problem is I can't find a compatible card, even on the IOXexperts website. I live in Canada and I dont want to have to spend $200 in total with shipping charges/customs/taxes. I have found several cards that have the same name such as D-Link DWL G650, but on IOXexperts website it says they support the DWL 650 (does the G do that much).

    I have thought at looking at ebay but it might not be worth it considering I may buy it and it end up not working, I can't return it like I can if I purchased it from a store.

    If any of you know a solution to my problem or a Canadian Store that has a card that will work on my computer with/without a driver I may need to buy I appreciate it.

    I have tried looking at Staples.ca, TheSourcebyCC.ca, Futureshop.ca

    Thanks for the help guys!
