New wireless drivers

OrangeWare has released a new driver version for Mac OS X. With the driver installed, you can use many "PC" WiFi products such as CardBus cards (with TiBooks etc. that have a PC-Card slot) and PCI-cards. It's - or so they say - the only solution for 802.11a wireless networks. A definite license costs 15 USD per seat - a demo version is available at the link above.
While OrangeWare's driver has been available before, the new version now supports 3com's widely available network cards that use the Atheros chipset. If you want to be truly independent, you might consider buying a D-Link, Sony or Linksys (or other) card that brings 802.11a/b/g compatibility to your PowerBook/PowerMac.
