    I've discovered an 3Com wireless card in eWaste today which would be a lovely upgrade for my TiBook. Unfortunately the drivers are for 10.2/10.3 only. LowEndMac indicates it'll work with Tiger using Orangeware third party drivers, but the linked website is defunct.

    Google doesn't turn anything up, can one of you fine people point me in the correct direction for a download?

    Have you tried putting the defunct website you have in the Internet Wayback machine?

    Sometimes the internet archive also captures the downloads.

    Good call.

    Unfortunately they saw me coming : "Page cannot be crawled or displayed due to robots.txt."

    :(

    Pretty useless driver unless you can crack the time bomb. I think there was a brief open source driver that either preceded or followed it. I remember looking for one last year but gave up after some prodigious googling, downloading, trying and discarding. It was easier to just get a better supported card.
