    Post Best pci-e mini wireless card for 10.5.6?

    Hello all, I have all but given up trying to get my Intel 4965 wireless card to work in OS X, seems that alot of people that are much more talented than me have been trying to do it for a while now, with no luck.

    So I have decided to replace my wireless card, wondering what everyone around here would recommend for the most compatible PCI-E Mini wireless card?

    Thanks in advance!

    Thank you for the reply, I have checked the HCL, and didn't see too many PCI-E mini cards listed, maybe I am not looking at the right HCL, I was looking on the osx86project wiki.

    Would still like suggestions if someone had a situation like mine and just has a straight recommendation.

    Til then I will be looking at the HCL's and researching.

    It may also be that I need to focus more on the chipset used than the form factor. I have noticed that alot of them use the same chipsets that are also in PCMCIA and even full size PCI Express. I am pretty sure that if they use the same chipset, the form factor shouldn't matter.
