Is there a way that you can attach an ethernet cable to a cardbus adapter. i have a D-link air laptop cardbus adapter and i would like to attach an ethernet cable to it. I have the actual cardbus slot from the laptop, i would really appreciate the help.

As far as I know, any kind of WiFi card would not have have the internal circuitry to support a wired Ethernet connection. It would be a lot easier and less expensive to just purchase an Ethernet cardbus adapter.

and also is there a way to solder an independent power source to the cardbus? Thanks for answering my first question :D
