I have a Netgear WG511T wireless card for my Lombard Powerbook. I was using the driver from OrangeWare. Recently, an application install destroyed my Library folder -- including the OrangeWare registration file. It now will not work, and the registration code will not work because OrangeWare seems to be gone. For its part, eSellerate says, "That's the manufacturer's problem." (Thanks for nothing.) So,...


1) Is there a way to recreate the OrangeWare driver registration file?


2) Is there a good driver available for the card?

or, perhaps best...

3) Is there still a wireless solution for this machine -- ideally one which supports WPA or WPA2? (The current card supports only WEP.)


The PowerBook has been upgraded to a G4 and is running 10.4.11. Thanks in advance for your assistance.

From OWC , USB wireless adapter. I use one with my 1999 iBook.


With full OS X support for Plug and Play operation straight from the box, the MAXPower 802.11g/b Wireless USB Stick Adapter offers fast and stable wireless networking at home, at the office, and at mobile hotspots wherever you travel. It's truly an ideal solution to easily add wireless networking capabilities to or upgrade existing performance from PowerMac® G4, iMac® G4, PowerBook® G3/G4, and/or iBook® G3 models that didn't include built in wireless or has a non-working AirPort® card.

My iBook is a g3 with USB 1 and works reliabily. These adapters also come with their own software.
