I know they don't work with airport cards, but are there any wireless cards that can be used with a beige G3?

Thank,
Brian

A quick search doesn't reveal any "mac compatible" cards but that doesnt mean the PC ones wont work. Often manufacturers wont label them as Mac compatible because they dont write drivers for them but generic or apple drivers work just fine. If you can find a card that uses a Lucent/Orinoco PCMCIA card in an adapter it should work just fine with the Apple airport drivers.

Unfortunatly mine has one of the mentioned bad ID & ROM combination.  I had checked this card out earlier but couldn't remember what it was called to mention it.

Old G3 cannot use Airport....Starting from Blue and White PowerMac G3 then can use Airport
But I think use other Wireless LAN card such as Orinoco is better, as weed has mention. It supports Mac OS 7.x-9.x but not MacOS X.... You can go to http://www.orinocowireless.com/template.html?section=m52&envelope=90    to see its driver
the other point to use Orinoco cos it is much cheaper than Airport...that's all of my opinion

You can use the Orinico card under OS X. In fact, im using one right now. You simply need to download the open source driver.

Thanks for the help I'm just going to have to trust you because the client decided to not put out the money for it.  Sorry for the delay in your points.
