    Does anyone know about the compatibility of expresscard/34 gigabit ethernet cards with Mac OS X in a MacBook Pro?

    I know Small Tree makes one explicitly 'for Mac', but it's ridiculously expensive compared to a run-of-the-mill card on newegg or whatever. Are the chipsets just standard and recognized, or is small tree's model somehow special? I don't see a driver for it on their website, which leads me to believe it would simply be recognized by Mac OS X.

    Has anyone used an ethernet card in their MBP?

    What's wrong with Gigabit Ethernet that every MacBook has built-in?

    Nothing; I need a second port.
