    Hello all, I have just stumbled upon some drivers for USB Wi-Fi cards, ones with Realtek chipsets, they have downloads for OS X 10.4 and OS X 10.5.
    I don't know if any of these work on PowerPC because I don't have any of these WiFi cards.
    If they do work on PowerPC Mac's it could do wonders for PowerBooks and iBooks with no 802.11n support.

    Here are the cards that have OS X drivers:
    RTL8191SU:
    RTL8188SU
    RTL8192SU
    RTL8192CU
    RTL8188CUS
    RTL8188RU


    This is a link to download them:

    I have an adapter for RTL8191SU and it seems to work with all my Macs running 10.4 on up. On some macs it intermittently disconnects from wifi.

    The best USB wireless adapter for my PowerPC Macs so far has been the Netgear WNA1000M. It is small, reliable, and affordable as well as capable of wireless N.
