OS X supported airport card for pismo?

hi,

is there an apple supported airport card for the pismo powerbook, so that i can use the existing airport software that is built into mac os x? if there is what brands are?
could i just use an apple brand one like the ones that used to ship in the ibook g3's?

thanks

I agree.. any Lucent wifi car

I agree.. any Lucent wifi card, really. Lucent makes good wireless equipment that normally works with Macs.

AirPort card is the way to go

A PC card is a hassle with its antenna hanging out the side. A pukka AP card costs only $40 to $60, and has zero software issues.

another thing i was wondering

another thing i was wondering is does the pismo have its own airport card slot AND a pcimia slot? if so would the pre extreme ibook airport cards work in a pismo? if it doesnt have this second slot will the ibook airpost card work anyway?

thanks

Yes

The pismo does have a pre-extreme airport card slot and a CardBus slot. So the airport card will work in your PB.

I think you would be really l

I think you would be really lucky to find one for under $250. Just a casual glance around still shows these machines selling around $400.00 depending on configuration.

Not sure where you're from, b

Not sure where you're from, but where I live, the only two pismos on craigslist are both going for over $400.00. I used to own two pismos. Great machines, but I just don't think they are worth that much anymore. But what do I know? If people keep selling them for that price, and other people keep buying them for it, then that establishes the market value. I just can't help but think that that is is a bit of a rip off. I hope you do find one for $250.00.
