Thanks. I know about Lucent, but they seem to be hard to find. Do you
know a source that has them? Farallon sells the 2MBPS version and
advertises them everywhere, but Lucent doesn't. I probably can do fine
with the 2MBPS version as my IP connection is slower than that....but I'd
rather get the faster one. I still can't believe Apple isn't selling an
AirPort card for older 'Books and cards for older desktops. Idiots.
