I use a "Conceptonic C54RC" (conceptonic.net) ... it's been rather cheap:
23 Euro or so ... :)

Which driver do you use for it? rt2500, rt2750? From what I see on

it seems you might need the rt2570 USB nightly CVS tarball, am I right?

Where's your message in the (serialmonkey?) forum: I didn't find it

I have currently 2 radio cards: the orinoco one (IINM: Apple calls it
"Airport Card", not "Airport Extreme" or such: Details about that
card in my previous postings in this thread a few minutes ago .. :)

And the second one is the "Conceptonic C54RC" that I run with the
serialmonkey.com rt2500 driver. I plug this card via the computer's
card bus (formerly PCMCIA) slot to the machine. But it currently works
only with WEP encryption, no TKIP, no AES. I didn't try a
non-encrypted running of rt2500 so far ... :)

Welcome .. :)
