    can i get wireless n on a G5?
    My dad has a 4 and a half year old power mac G5, and when we got it i installed a piece to allow wireless g. I was looking online and I couldn't find a similar piece for wireless n. Does this piece exist?

    Have a look at Afterthemac.com.
    They work great!

    They have them. I'm just not sure if it's compatible.

    From the research I found, I'd say no. It seems to be limited to intell processors. Personally, I'd go with the Afterthemac.com
    It will work. I have one myself and have actually used it for Windows XP. (found a compatible driver and program)
    If I find some more info, I'll be sure to post it.

    I agree with Soulwar. The Apple one is for the Mac Pro and it will not work with your older G5 which takes an Airport Extreme card only. The card for the Mac Pro is different. I would go with that one from afterthemac.com.

    I got an iMac g3 and went to walmart and bought a wireless G adapters for like 20 dollars it came only with windows drivers but i installed it with another driver i found online. It saved me like a 100 dollars cause Airports cost so much. If you need help installing it message me.
