        I am currently using a Senao SL2511CD PLUS on a Pismo 400MHz and 
MacOS X 10.2.8, and it's working fine.  I bought my cards "bare" 
through a friend in the Netherlands, so no drivers were provided (I 
use the IOXperts WiFi driver, which works just fine).  I believe that 
EnGenius is a licensed distributor/reseller for this line of cards in 
the US, but you may also be able to obtain them from the OEM in 
Taiwan (Senao) or through a reseller/distributor that does not 
re-brand them.

        There is also a model that allows you to attach your own external 
antennas, if you like.

        If you can't find $20.00 to buy a license to use the card with 
the IOXperts driver, you can use the freely available WirelessDriver 
(from SourceForge), although that driver doesn't provide support for 
WEP encryption.

        I highly recommend this card.
