    Default Will PCMCIA Airport Cards work on hackint0sh?

    Ok so I haven't been able to find anything and fear the answer is no but wanted to ask before I put this to rest.

    I have a Airport Card (PCMCIA) from a old iMac G4. Then I have iDeneb (OSX 10.5.8) installed on a IBM Thinkpad T43 laptop. I have the cardbus slots on the laptop working as I can insert CompactFlash card and see it mount on the desktop and view its contents. So I thought I give the Airport Card a try but it is not detected. I figure this is because 1) Its not supported in x86 OSX or 2) Dont have right kext's to make it work. Does anyone know if I could get this to work on my laptop for WiFi use?

    Here is a link to Apple page with device I talk about.
    AirPort Card: Compatible Macs

    Cheers!

    You may be the one who tell the story whether it would work or not. Without correct kexts, most of the times the card won't be detected.

    In theory, it would need 2 drivers. One is the cardbus PCMCIA port driver, and since it's recognized it should be ok.
    The other is your PCMCIA network kext. If it's from Mac then the kext should be there. Find out what OS version that G4 was installed with and if it's 10.x then you can use kext from it system files. You can also search if you know its model/ID number.
    Let us know.
