I bought a clamshell after much thought, I and other people online thought a clamshell would be sufficant for my basic mac needs... I picked up a blueberry for 75 bucks; dead battery, 96mb, 3gb... when it arrived I was suprised that it had airport, it was a mistake by the seller... I ordered a lucent wavelan on the same day, I've put them in clamshells before, and I was wondering will the internal antenna work when I have the ibooks antenna plugged into it, it's pretty easy and a little more range cant hurt . thanks for ur help
I have a lucent Orinoco card in my clamshell and the antenna fit, and it just worked. Uses the apple drivers in both os9 and osx. All I had to do as remove the modem and some of the heat-sink so the antenna would fit.
Yeah, the old orinoco cards were broadcom and are recognised as airport or airport extreme cards. Not sure thats true of the newer ones. I know for a fact that Belkin cards change chipset without even changing model number.
