Cisco Aironet 350 PCMCIA driver for OS 9
« on: January 13, 2019, 10:24:42 AM »
I've spotted this card in a second hand webpage... A lowendmac article says it's compatible with Mac OS 9 (http://lowendmac.com/2009/wifi-pc-cards-for-powerbooks-running-mac-os-9/) but the driver is not available at Cisco's webpage. I only see end of support notices and some Windows software...

If anyone keeps a copy of this card it will be greatly appreciated.

I've got the driver disc and can upload when I'm home. It's frustrating how they get rid of everything over 2-5 years old, I've been trying to find the driver for OSX since my PB doesn't recognize the airport card.

Great thanks... I'll be very grateful if you can upload it.

Iíve a Cisco (disco) disk from that era (came to me in a Mac mini) and
I should get downstairs this week sometime to possibly locate it.
But if someone else finds theirs first, do please advise. ;)

Received the card today, installed the drivers but the card is not recognised. I see there are three new extensions:

pcm340
pcm340Enabler
pcm350Enabler

Also the installed app is called pcm340PPC. Maybe these drivers are suited for the aironet 340 and not the 350?

I will try this card in a TiBook but that laptop is now at home (broken screen, only usable with VGA output). This one runs native OS9 so maybe that's the problem, trying to use this on a unsupported AluBook...

That link looks a little dodgy, it lead to a fake MediaFire site. Thanks anyway though FDB I'll keep an eye out!

Willywonka I'll check whether my card is a 350 when I'm home (I'm pretty sure it is). Won't be back until another week.

Found out the PC card slot is not working under OS 9.

However I found drivers that do work under Mac OS X

https://software.cisco.com/download/home/277410767/type/280775082/os/MacOS/release/3.0.1

Looks like the utility supports the Aironet 340/350 series.

Apologies for the dodgy link. :-X
(From the hip, no follow-through.)
Glad WillyWonka stayed on the case.
Thanks!
