Need help to choose Wireless NIC


1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Everybody,

I have a Notebook HP DV2268EA, i installed the Leo 10.5.2 with EFI and Vanilla from KalyWay Dvd...

Everything looks to work fine, except for the Ethernet (INTEL PRO100VE) and Wireless (Intel PROWireless3945).

So i have a perfect MAC without Internet! :):(

Now i'm connecting using Bluetooth interface (because Leo recognize only the onboard bluetooth adapter integrated with 3945) and a shared Internet connection on a Vista PC always powered on, but i'm planning to buy a new Wireless NIC.

I've got the opportunity to get two NIC for few bucks, that are:

-Trendnet Wireless N 300Mbps USB2.0

-Linksys WUSB300N

-Linksys WPC300N

I have a Linksys WAG325N, so i'm looking for a Wireless N interface, no a/b/g.

Moreover i'm looking for a PCMCIA Express NIC, because I use a 2.5HDD to boot MAC, so it requires 2 USB port and onother 1 for Mouse, so i haven't no more free USB ports, this is the reason i prefer to get a PCMCIAExpress Wireless NIC....

I would buy the WPC300N, but i don't know if it's ok, and i didn't saw it in the 10.5.2 HCL.

Please, someone could tell me if the WPC300N does work? (even with the use of patched driver) and if not, the best Wirelss N NIC PCMCIA to buy?

I would buy a NIC that don't need patched drivers, recognized as a normal AirPort.


Appriciate all your answer....

Best Regards....
