    Hi, i recently bought this for my old G4:


    Airport cards are pricey and costs half as much as my system's total street value.

    I installed it along with the accompanying driver this morning and while my mac recognizes the card exists, I can't seem to find any software that works with it to search for wi-fi connections.

    I tried istumbler but it only seems to work with airport specific cards.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you for responding.

    Those only appear to be drivers which i already have installed.

    I just can't do anything with my card because there's nowhere where I can find an option to connect anywhere (I'm told there should be an airport menu but I see none).

    I tried a program called istumbler that scans for open ports but it doesn't support my card.
