Hey Jouni, 

First off thanks for the reply,
It's basically the only wifi card that will work in a G3 Ibook, Macintosh's 
are proprietary hardware. It isnt a PCMCIA Card either, it is installed 
under the keyboard /w a built in antenna. 

I believe the driver is 'Airport' 

Here's some more info on this:

Thank you,
