The only compatible internal wireless card is the Airport Extreme card.

If you choose to go the USB route, there are other options, but I must confess I am unfamiliar with them.

hi rodrigo,

you should look for an wireless dongle that is supported by your operating system or has the driver/kext for your system.

there are not that many options for you - i know that there are a few chipsets are supported by os10.

the easiest way to find something that works is the hardware list for kismac, kismac is/was a very popular wardriving program for mac computers - on their webpage are the working and not working devices for that program - if it works with kismac - it works with os 10
