    iMac G5 with Airport in exisitng network
    Hi there!

    I'm planning on purchasing an iMac G5 for the new hous we'll be moving to soon. Now the thing is, I have an existing 802.11g Network there, using a Belkin Wireless Access point. First of all, can I pick up any signal using an Airport Card in my iMac, or do I have to buy an Airport Extreme Base Station ?

    If I need to buy the base station, can I use my Belkin USB Receivers to receive the signal on my PC Laptop?

    Thanks in advance...

    you dont need the base station, if the access point can act as a wireless router, its all youll need.
