airport card for Pismo
I want to put an airport card into my 400 MHZ G3 Pismo. Is this possible? What kind of card and where can I find one?
Here's the iFixit guide to adding an Airport card to the Pismo: PowerBook G3 Pismo Airport Card Replacement
And here's the recommended card: Airport Card
When I wanted to give my old Pismo wireless capabilities, I ended up buying a PCMCIA card instead of an Apple Airport card -- it was just much, much cheaper. The minus is that you have the end of the PCMCIA card jutting out of the side of the computer. The bonus is that it *might* get better reception than a card that's internally installed.
The Airport card is the most trouble-free solution, but they can be expensive and hard to find. I'm glad ifixit has them.
Alternatives are the PCMCIA card ones, as mister790 suggests; there are also USB/wireless adapters, but I dunno if they'd work with the system the Pismo is running. The USB solution (and some of the PCMCIA cards, I think) means dinking around with drivers and connection apps that are workable but a pain to use.
