USB WiFi dongle for PowerBooks

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
With the release of Mario Kart DS for the Nintendo DS yesterday, I've been playing the hell out of it online and love it. Because I have fairly long breaks at university, I'd like to squeeze in some MKDS action when I have nothing else to do (finished HW, no upcoming tests, etc).

Unfortunately, university WiFi connections aren't accessible with a DS, so I decided to use my PowerBook as a hotspot. I need a USB WiFi dongle that I can use for the PowerBook to connect to the university WiFi and then use the Airport card via Internet Sharing to connect to my DS.

Nintendo's released a USB WiFi dongle officially, but it's only compatible with WinXP (boo). So, are there any Mac-compatible USB dongles out there that I can use? Thanks a lot! =)

    Keep in mind... you've also got a PCMCIA slot for wich there are several WiFi cards.

    oh ... i guess the 12" doesn't have that option.

    There are certainly plenty of USB dongles out there, no reason why they shouldn't work on your mac, but I couldn't say for sure.
