FYI, You may not get good results.
I have a PB 1.67 17 and I have never got really usable wifi from it. Here is what I have tried:
1. Fixed wifi channel on 1 and 6.
2. Tried PCMCIA Ethernet.
3. Tried playing with buffer settings to increase performance.
At the end of the day, with either wifi adapter (internal or pcmcia) with different channels and other settings the Wifi sucks. You absolutely have to run it in the same room as the wifi device to have a chance of stability and speed, even if you go just one room over it will stall constantly. Obviously other equipment works as expected on the same wifi device.
Seems like others have had good luck, not me...
So good luck but don't expect much...Quote:

I'm not running Airport any more. I have some WiFi 6 gear from ASUS in Mesh configuration. I think I may still have a pcmcia card somewhere that I used before the built-in Wi-Fi was supported. I'll have to see if I can find that and see if it makes a difference.
