    Anyone know of a PCMCIA network card that is compatible with Unix?

    Thanks

    Unix as...?

    BSD? Which one [OpenBSD/FreeBSD/NetBSD]?

    OS X? FreeBSD variant after all...

    Solaris? IRIX? HP-UX? or... THE Unix from S da matha fackin CO?

    I think the best way to go is to check out the supported hardware list for a specific vendor.

    There are a bunch of d-link card that have the Atheros chipset, and if I'm not mistaken that is supported on many different *nixes but that's just wireless. Other than that never had a problem with intel cards

    pcmcia or cardbus? I assume you mean cardbus. Wired or wireless? Ethernet? Fiber? Copper? etc?

    sorry for the lack of info i was in a rush. UNIX SCO 5.0.6. is installed on a laptop that has no NIC, i need an RJ45 NIC (not wireless) that is compatible.

    cool? .... meh

    It's kind of out of necessity, we got stuck with 2 bike shows on the same week and the shuttle server is with one salesman and we don't have another one and obviously everything has to be done last minute :wtc:

    We can run our software straight off the laptop over SCO but the big boss wants at least 2 PC's there just for the "show".

    Something 3com based is usually a good bet for support, especially the older stuff (older cards will generally be more likely to have drivers, since there's been more time for people to write the drivers).
