Well... for what kind of Mac? PowerBooks and iBooks since 2000 have all had internal wireless slots, so your best bet there would be to locate an Apple-branded card for it.

Before 2000, there were the Lucent WaveLAN cards, Proxim Orinoco, and Proxim Skyline. Three excellent choices.

If you have a really old PowerBook (190, 5300, 1400, 2400, 3400) your best bet would be a Lucent WaveLAN Gold or Proxim Orinoco Gold.

D-Link has a Mac Compatible section on their website. How old is your mac? Most should have included an Apple Airport Card.
