Revives an old Apple Powerbook

Aloysius Horn, Amazon
10 March 2011
  • Summary: This is just the ticket for giving a second life to a first-generation Apple Powerbook (running Tiger) as a useful web reader. Just plug the F5D7011 into the PC-card slot and its recognized as if it were an airport card. And this give you 802.11g, instead of 802.11b. $15 well invested!

LINUX Ready PCMCIA Card

David A. Yoo Sr. "Ichido", Amazon
11 April 2007
  • Summary: This PCMCIA Card, F5D7011, Version 1000, works out of the box with Linspire 5.0, Freespire, Ubuntu/Kubuntu!! You don't even need the 'Install CD" for 802.11b/g at 54Mbs! Don't get the F5D7011B, or the Version 2000, they do not work in the above listed Linux O.S.es.

Save your time and money - buy something else

T. Sellers "tms2", Amazon
2 March 2007
  • Summary: I purchased this wireless network card to replace a Microsoft MN-720. I had nothing but problems and could not get it to work on my wireless network. I thought maybe it was because my router was Microsoft not Belken, so I tried it at work also without success. I returned it and replaced it with a Linksys WPC54GS. The Linksys works great. All I had to do is plug it in. For now on, I'll spend the extra money and get a good product the first time.

Mac OS X 10.3.9 / Pismo Compatible

Spock, Amazon
1 May 2006
  • Summary: I am using Ver. 1101 of this card in my Pismo Powerbook, running OS X 10.3.9. Since this card uses the Broadcom chipset, my PowerBook automatically recognizes it and allows me to set it up using the original Airport software. I am using WPA2 Personal encryption for additional security. Belkin does not say that this card is Mac OS X compatible and does not provide Mac drivers for it, but it works fine.

software issues

R. Garza-Grande, Amazon
1 December 2005
  • Summary: I was never able to install the software for this thing. Not only that, it crashed my computer a number of times and made subsequent restarts and shutdowns really slow. I ended up going with a linksys after I returned this one. The linksys software didn't quite work either, but at least it didn't crash the computer. What I ended up doing was just using the drivers windows has to run the card and it works perfectly.
