Netgear WG511 v.1 with a Tibook 400mhz

Is it possible to get a Netgear 54 Mbps Wireless PC Card (32-bit Cardbus WG511) working in a Titanium Powerbook 400mhz?

I am running Panther (currently) and its appropriate Airport software and it does not recognize the card.

Is there anyway to use this Windows card in my Powerbook?

Thanks.

Check Netgear's Website

I would check Netgear's website in their drivers/support section. If they have drivers for Mac, you'll find them there. Otherwise, I would imagine you're SOL. My PB G4 wouldn't even recognize my Orinoco Silver card pulled from an Airport base station in the PCMCIA slot, but it works as an airport card internally on my other machines that are pre-airport extreme. Go figure.

I checked Netgear before posting to 'fritter.

This morning I found a driver for my card and it works.

Check it out. It may work with other PCMCIA cards that don't have commercial mac drivers.
