For several years now, Apple¨ users have chafed at the issue that most wireless cards (CardBus and PCI) donÕt work with AppleÕs computers. Why is that? ItÕs because the Apple¨ client driver only works with the Broadcom chipset. Recently, OrangeWare developed a Mac OS X Wireless Driver for the 3Com wireless line of cards which use the Atheros chip, and licensed the driver to 3Com. As a result, the Atheros based 3Com cards are now compatible with Mac. This Mac compatibility is offered by 3Com at no charge to its users. OrangeWareÕs Wireless Driver for Mac broadens the driver availability

FYI these drivers are not the only solution that connects 802.11a on the Mac. The Mac Book Pro ships with a card that will connect to them though it is NOT officially supported.

I'd like someone to produce a Mac OS X driver for Belkin's Wireless Pre-N Notebook Network Card, Part # F5D8010. This card uses the Airgo MIMO chipset. I use Belkin's pre-N router and the range increase is fantastic, even with my old Airport card in my PIsmo. But the pre-N router coupled with the pre-N card would increase the range even further and the the trhougput would go through the roof as well.

Anyone up to it?

This driver works flawlessly on my G5 with a D-Link PCI card!

Does this mean you can use these cards in the airport slot, or the PCMCIA slot?

It fits in the PCMI slot of laptops. I have a D-Link Air Plus Extreame G 108 MPS card running on my Pismo using this driver and OSX 10.3.9, however it has one quirk. The card has to be plugged in during logon for the driver to run it.

As a result, the Atheros based 3Com cards are now compatible with Mac. This Mac compatibility is offered by 3Com at no charge to its users. OrangeWareÕs Wireless Driver for Mac broadens the driver availability to all users of Atheros based wireless cards. They include D-Link, Netgear, Aztec, Elecom, Fujitsu, IBM, Linksys, NEC, Samsung and Sony, and many more. All their current wireless offerings listed below can use the new OrangeWare Driver. This means that the Mac user can now link up with Mac and PC access points by using a variety of now-compatible wireless add-on cards. These solutions coupled with the OrangeWare driver are faster than the Airport¨ Extreme cards, and can cost half as much. Another unique benefit of this driver is for the Mac users who need to connect to PC based Ò802.11aÓ wireless access points. OrangeWareÕs driver is the only solution available to Mac Users -- nothing else works.
