    Okay, So I have my PowerBook G4 Titanium running at 867 Mhz with Tiger 10.4.11 and I put my Dell TrueMobile 1150 card in which is supposed to work as an AirPort car and it gives me a card icon in the finder but it doesn't work as an AirPort card and I cant get it to light up or anything, Any ideas?

    Did you put it in the PCMICA slot or the internal Airport Slot?

    Original AirPort cards can be had on eBay for around $10 shipped these days (I've gotten several over the last year or so) and it really saves a lot of trouble. For that card, you'll just have to see if you can find some Mac drivers for it. If the computer sees it as a card, and not Airport, then its not trying to use it as an Airport card at all.
