802.11b card for Lombard? - Mac Portable

Anyone have any suggestions/recommendations on a good 802.11b Cardbus card for a Lombard G3 Powerbook? I'm using a D-Link wireless router and compatibility with it is a must. Also looking for something that will let me connect via AppleTalk to other computers on the network as well as tap into the DSL connection. Thanks! +++++++++++++++++++++++++ H.B.

    After a month or so thinking about I eventually selected the Asante
    Netfriendly card for my wifes Lombard - great card, no fuss, plug and watch
    the thing work also supports b/g forms of the 8011 protocol. No need for
    extra drivers unless you were using it on a windows machine (hehe)

    Others to think about:
    Buffalo cards
    Oroinoco cards

    It's OS 9, on a 333 MHz Lombard G3. The wireless router is a D-Link.
    I'm looking for something that will not only allow me to use my DSL
    connection, but connect via AppleTalk to another Man on the LAN
    (specifically a LaCie Pocket Drive plugged into a Digital Audio G4).

    I don't think the D-Link router supports AppleTalk so it won't matter
    what you put in your Lombard.

    Under OS 9 any of the WaveLAN / Orinoco / Proxim Gold or Silver cards
    will work using the Airport software.
