More Details on AirPort 3.1 Compatibility

More Details on AirPort 3.1 Compatibility -- Darn those nit-picking product numbers! Last week I wrote in "AirPort 3.1 Supports Third Party 802.11g PC Cards" that Buffalo Technology's 802.11g PC Card costs about $60 and works with Macs thanks to the AirPort 3.1 update. Alert reader Dale Rice pointed out that Buffalo Technology actually sells two 802.11g PC Cards: the $60 WLI-CB-G54 card is not actually compatible with AirPort 3.1, whereas the $80 WLI-CB-G54A is. Make sure you get the right one!

Dale also noted that he'd seen reports of AirPort 3.1 working with a Belkin 802.11g PC Card. More interesting, for those people who would like to connect a pre-AirPort Extreme Power Mac to an AirPort Extreme network, are anecdotal reports of 802.11g PCI cards from Buffalo Technology (the WLI-PC-G54) and Linksys (the WMP54G) working with AirPort 3.1. The moral of the story would seem to be that compatibility is broad, but check for specific compatibility claims or at least user reports before buying. [ACE]
