    According to D-Link, that card is only compatible with Windows. To use a third-party wireless card on a Mac, you need one that is specifically designed for it. Your best bet would be to use one that is compatible with Apple's built-in Airport software (sonnet makes one), or use an original Airport card.

    You need an Apple AirPort card, this doesn't go in the PCMCIA slot, this is installed in your PowerBook, most likley under the keyboard. People in the Marketplace section of these forums might be selling them or you can check around on eBay, they usually go for $60-80

    You can also look for Mac OS X compatible PCMCIA Wireless cards too but, make sure they are compatible before buying them. Good luck :)
