    Are you talking air cards? E.g. wireless broadband from At&t, Sprint or Verizon?

    no the ones that go in the pcmcia slot on the powerbook g4. it seems from what i have found on the net they have to have a broadcom chip in them or railink? but i dont want to go with the original air port card cuz everyone says its slow.

    Yes, I heard you - PCMCIA. Let me re-ask mine a different way:

    What kind of network are you looking to connect to:

    WiFi (802.11a,b,g, or n)
    Cellular
    or
    3G cellular?
