    I think i must wait until the development finished. In your opinion, how long will it take?

    Now, my laptop has no network/connection. Any idea how to make its network/connection works by using modem or ethernet? My hardware are:

    Network Adapter = Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection --> No Driver for now
    Network Adapter = Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC
    Modem = Motorola SM56 Data Fax Modem

    What driver (kext) i must intall to make ethernet and modem works?

    Could i use PCI Card or wireless USB Dongle?

    Thank you for you help and happ new year!

    I waited for over a year. Not worth the wait. Just buy a broadcom card and call it a day.
    I bought a Dell DW1505B/G/N card and stuck it into my laptop and started OSX. OSX recognized it as an airport and I didn't have to do anything. I didn't even have to mess with any kexts, thankfully.

    Well worth the $30 investment (shipped, bought through ebay).

    I've managed to make mine working, but there's always a BUT.

    Card is recognized and is making search for wireless networks available and shows them, BUT these drivers only conect to networks WITHOUT security. This means that only free wireless's will work.

    How to install:

    Go to http://code.google.com/p/iwidarwin/

    and download

    PROSet/Wireless 3945a/b/g OS X 10.5 SVN latest

    now, on your MAC, do the following:

    Install the .pkg and when it tells you to press restart DON'T DO IT right away. Wait a minute because Leopard will recognize the card and ask you to go to network preferences. When that happens, press APPLY in network preferences.

    Now you can reboot.

    DON'T TRY TO OPEN THE UTILITY TO WORK WITH THE WIRELESS CARD YET.

    After reboot, go to disk manager and make a permissions repair action. After that, reboot again.

    Now you can go to Applications folder and start the NetworkSelector app.

    Enjoy your wireless device.

    Thanks for your info. I tried googling Dell DW1505B/G/N card but can't find it. Any other card that will be recognized by OSX?
