Hi odell, welcome to iFixit Answers.

The airport extreme wireless card will not work in your iBook G3 clamshell. You need to buy the first generation Apple wireless card. The airport extreme wireless card will only work in iBooks G4/PowerBooks G4 and G4 towers so return the card for a refund or maybe your seller has the first generation card if so ask for a swap..

Here's the card you need:

Under the Apple icon in the upper left hand corner, Go to About this Mac. This is the system profiler. Hit the More info button. In the under "Network" go to the Airport Card. See if the computer can see the card.. Did you remember to plug in the connector to the card?
