AirPortCard

These look like PCMCIA cards but actually aren't. They are used to upgrade "AirPort ready" Apple computers (both desktop and laptop) with wireless capability. Apple's AirPort Base Stations are standard 802.11b so AirPort Card equipped Apples will work with non-Apple access points and vice versa.

Airport card

The special AirPort connector on AirPort-ready Apples carries an antenna pin, which connects to an antenna built into the frame of the machine. With a bit of futzing about, you can get a pigtail in there.

AirPort-ready, G3-based, slot-load iMacs need a caddy to install an AirPort card.

AirPortExtreme cards are 802.11g and not back-compatible with Airport slots. Damn you Steve!
