You'll have to find the original AirPort card - it's the only one compatible with the clamshell iBooks. (NOT the AirPort Extreme card)
Unfortunately, Apple no longer carries these. You'll have to track one down through a third-party seller.
I have the same exact iBook as you (G3 graphite 366) and picked an AirPort card up a few years ago (during its summer of revitalization), and am happily connected wirelessly.
Hope this helps,
WoW! Thank you so much for that piece of advice! Imagine after all these years, I have never had the need to buy an Airport card. I should have figured this out years ago... haha. But I guess now that the iBook is older, I want to still make good use of it (considering how much I paid for it then and how that compares to something you can buy today :)). It is a good machine and has served me well. So, with the Airport card I can connect to a hotel's wireless internet?
PS... On the iBook, I run Mac OS 10.2.8, 320MB Ram, 5GB HD, 366 MHz Processor. Uses: internet, email, music and movies!
You can either use the apple one, or what I use is an Lucent Orinoco one with the HERMS chipset. It works just like the apple card.
My iBook is a clamshell 300Mhz 320MB RAM and 10.4.10, and it works fine.
This is a good example. It does take a bit of hacking to get it in though...
