Original PC24-H Airport Card
Use Apple's AirPort card to add/join wireless networking almost anywhere in your building. Airport lets you provide network/internet access to multiple users without installing expensive cabling. With AirPort Enabled Macintosh systems, it's a snap to exchange files or play multiplayer games. And because AirPort uses radio waves for communication, it can even work through walls. AirPort is compatible with the 802.11b wireless networking protocol, which means it will work with all AirPort products, as well as Wi-Fi certified 802.11b wireless products. This will allow you to join any of the thousands of Wi-Fi certified 802.11b/g wireless hot spots running in coffeehouses, bookstores, airports, hotels, motels, and even the Chehalis Library!, yep, there is even wi-fi in my local small town library.
You can create your own wireless network in your home or business with an AirPort (or AirPort Extreme b/g) Base Station to communicate between your AirPort and AirPort Extreme equipped systems and the Internet. Also, IF you have a machine that is already connected to the net and left on pretty much all the time, you could add an airport card to that machine and use it as a base-station/wireless-router. All you would need to do is setup internet sharing for other macs connected thru the airport. OS-X will then turn on routing and DCHP service so other macs can connect wirelessly thru the one that is left on all the time. Of course THIS IS NOT something you want to do in college dorm situation, since your mac will start spitting out IP addresses to pretty much any machine on the local network.
Network cards generally tend to work, or not work; with the usual exception being that they will work when transferring small-files/amounts-of-data, but have problems when transferring large files, like multiple 1GB Video_TS files. Problems other than cards being pretty much dead, will usually NOT show up with diagnostics or test programs, but WILL show up with actual usage after cards have gotten warm.
I test these cards not just for functionality, but to make sure they run at normal speeds. In order to do this type of testing I've had custom antenna cables built that directly connect airport extreme basestations to the AirPort cards. This eliminates any interference or sunspots from affecting the tests. Cards are tested by transferring an 7.72GB Media Folder between machines, which takes just under 5 hours. This is plenty of time for the cards to get hot and show any problems they may have, and if the transfer takes much more then 5 hours, I figure something is wrong and put it in the recycle bin.
Install Tip Here. Older machines can have oxidation on antenna/card-slot connections. When testing cards, I take antenna cable and sort of push it into card, and then while still pushing twist it clockwise/counter-clockwise a few times. This will rub connection points together a bit and clean off most oxidation that may be on card to antenna connection points. The cards Edge-Connection (that goes into computers slot) is already cleaned, but if there's oxidation on pins in computers slot You may get poor connection, between card and computer.. plugging and unplugging card a few times should rub off most oxidation that may be in the slot itself..
PayPal Addresses & BUGsPayPal, Payments are ONLY Accepted if transaction is fully eligible for Seller Protection. This SHOULD mean the Buyers shipping address must be PayPal CONFIRMED. HOWEVER a Recent PayPal Bug/Error has been making it so many payments made with Cash-In/Credit-Card Linked-To PayPal Account show-up as "Not Eligible" for Seller Protection. If payment Cred-Card based it MAY show up properly, and if Bank-Account based it USUALLY shows up properly. A way around This-Bug is to Select that you DO NOT HAVE a PayPal account at checkout, then you MUST give them a Credit-Card and an email address that ARE NOT associated with Your PayPal account. AND the shipping address you provide MUST match the billing address on the credit card. If either (email or cred card) is associated with a PayPal account they will refuse to process the transaction saying you must login to your PayPal Account. If you login to paypal, they will then process the payment sending me an email that says the transaction is "Not Eligible" for seller protection.
I Do Not Sell or Ship in Washington State, and don't want to process refunds when folks from Washington place orders. People often Have/Leave Old/Out-of-Date/Incorrect Shipping Info in PayPal, which causes problems when things get Lost in the Mail. Sometimes People from other countries use Friends/Relatives address in the US so they have PayPal Confirmed shipping info. Standard PayPal settings can't deal with any of these things. Because of this, ALL Payments are put on Hold/Review, so I can Verify that Buyers are NOT in Washington, The shipping info is Good/Current, and hopefully avoid any other problems/issues/questions by communicating BEFORE Accepting Payment.
I would like to put a contact link in here, but don't want the spam-bots getting info off web pages, and flooding my in-box with garbage. So You'll have to do a bit of cut/paste, sorry for the trouble. Name is christian_g then there is that little round symbol with the "a" inside, and provider is fastmail. net (remove the space before net).

I'm REALLY busy working on the items I sell. I do the most thorough testing and best packing reasonably possible to make sure You get a great product. Taking time from what's important to the end result, in order to work as an unpaid Tax Collector seems counter-productive. Don't get me wrong, I can't think of anyplace I would rather live, but spending time working on the actual business seems more reasonable than spending it filling out complicated forms. With this in mind, I WILL-NOT sell or ship anything in Washington. The paperwork is much less time consuming if it's mostly a bunch of zeros.
