Can a Wallstreet running Jaguar use an external WI-FI card?

I have just won an auction for a spares/repair Wallstreet. Would this be able to cope with an external WI-FI card? I gather that it should be able to run Jaguar. I have seen one website selling plug in cards to allow use of USB & Firewire devices and I did spot an external WI-FI card but in small print it talked about 10.4 (Tiger) only. Has anyone been able to use wireless connections via a Wallstreet?

The PB Wallstreet will run up to Mac OS X 10.2.8

I'm sure you can get a wireless card that will work with the Wallstreet but I can't say for sure which one myself - but I would go over to xlr8yourmac.com or PowerBookwireless.net and take a look there for a solution

Yes, U can use a wifi card with Wallstreet under Jaguar os X.2. I have the same configuration & it works fine. I use a Belkin card.

The original Airport Base Station used Orinoco cards. Either a gold or silver orinoco card will work. In OS 9 no drivers are needed and they are seen as true airport cards. For jaguar you need to download the the drivers from sourceforge.
