10.3: Airport Extreme and third-party cards on older Macs
Authored by: mclbruce on Jan 19, '04 12:34:55PM

Cards from many companies will work with OS X, including D-Link, Buffalo, and MacWireless. As far as the clearance problem with antennas on PCI cards goes, Buffalo has a PCI card with an external antenna.

I think a USB wireless adaptor should only be used as a last resort on a Mac. There are many Ethernet to wireless products hout there that will work without requiring any Mac specific drivers. These devices are usually called wireless bridges.
