  1. Hi

    I have an older laptop. I am afraid the PC card slot is only 16 bit.

    I am upgrading my network form 802.11b to 802.11 g.

    Has anybody ever heard of a 802.11 g PCMCIA wireless adapter that is only 16 bit?
    (I know this is highly unlikely but just thought I would ask:)

    there are different types of pcmcia slots (I,II,III,IV i believe) but they are all 32-bit interfaces.

    A 16-bit PCMCIA wireless G adapter would be rather pointless since the throughput of the 16-bit PCMCIA is only 20Mbit/s whereas your G network has the theoretical speed of 54Mbit/s.
