I've used one of these devices with an older Mac Pro that did not have a wireless card. It actually worked well. The only issue I had was with device drivers. I updated the OS and the supplied driver stopped working which meant the device stopped working.

A few weeks later I found a working driver by finding out what chipset was involved and going to that site. The vendor whose name was on the device still had the older driver on their site.

I'll do some thinking and see if I can figure out internet sharing.
