I know it's not cardbus, but it says right on the box that it will only work in a cardbus slot. The real question is what feature is it using from a cardbus slot that isn't on a standard 16-bit PCMCIA slot?

I agree, some way to make it work would be great, but I don't know how much effort it is worth since there are other cards that are just as good for basiclly the same price.
