I have had great success with my lucent orinocco silver pcmcia card. I have used it with a Wallstreet, Pismo 500 from OS 10.2.6 to now 10.3.2. I have always used the open source driver at sourceforge. I usually use a 5dbi mag-mount antenna on the roof of the car. This has given me fairly good results, I will soon build a directional tin-can antenna.
Hope this helps

I've used both the Lucent (now Proxim, right?) Orinoco Silver / Gold, and
the Cisco 340 & 350 with success on my TiBook running both 10.2.8 and
now 10.3.2.

Can anyone who is using this exact hardware/os version recommend a third
party card that they actually have been using successfully? Not to be a
stickler, but I'd prefer if you've personally had success and are using
such, rather than what you've heard from someone else....

Thanks so much!
