    Realistically it needs an AirPort card (Express or regular depending on the Mac) however you can get it working with a third party card (assuming you have an available slot) or a USB dongle, but then you have to find drivers. For most generic brand cards/dongles, OSX has no drivers since most Macs just use AirPort. :)
