    Default Yet another wifi thread - 3945abg replacement?

    Hey all!

    So back story for whoever might read this:

    I've managed to get os x 10.5.1 installed with the kalyway dvd repeatedly, i can even get my system upgraded to 10.5.5 with almost everything fully supported. The only real problem I'm having to date is my f'n wifi.

    I've managed to get my cardbus working with some modified kexts, and I have wifi working *very* unreliably with an atheros chipset pcmcia card. Due to all the issues I've been having with both external wifi and the internal unsupported wifi, i've decided to go ahead and replace my internal intel 3945abg chipset.

    Now, since i'm lacking experience with osx prior to my osx86 installs, i'm not really sure what avenue to pursue.

    I've been reading that i can replace my internal mini pci-e card with a card based on another chipset, however i've read that there are caveats to each and i have to verify that it will work with my mobo and so on.

    I'm looking for something that will work with an install natively with no modification.

    I don't know what chipsets will work and my google-fu is weak on this matter, so i was wondering if someone might be able to provide some suggestions, or might at least be able to tell me what i should be looking for in a replacement mini pci-e card.

    Any help is greatly appreciated! thanks!

    Try Realtek 8187B USB Adapter, or some broadcomm 43xx card.

    Goodluck,

    f41qu3, thanks a lot!

    did a little digging and looks like the dell truemobile 1490 *should* work so i'm gonna attempt to hunt one down tomorrow locally, otherwise i'll have to hit ebay and see what i can do.

    Thanks again for your quick reply, it's greatly appreciated!
