Hello

First of all this my first post here so i would like to introduce myself.

My name is Chris and i have just bought myself a G5 off eBay,

Specs;

2.3ghz Dual Core Processor
10GB Ram
250GB HD
OS X 10.5.8
23" Apple HD display
All for the small price of 350 which made me a happy bunny!

I am now wanting to make it wireless and have done some research.

I know that the Airport extreme cards aren't for sale anymore so my question is,

Has anyone got any experiences of a third party PCI wireless card for this?

i appreciate your help!
QUOTE Thanks

G'day Chris and welcome to the forums.

If this is a Dual Core with PCI-E and DDR2 memory, you need the Wireless/Bluetooth combo card and they are dear as all get out and available probably in US only where I purchased one some years ago from a LA warehouse, DVWarehouse from memory.

This was discussed here:-

PowerMac G5 Bluetooth Dongle issues

And have never ever got a USB or PCIE wireless card to work yet with a Mac.

Here is one I found cheap, did you actually use your friend Google?

Thanks Harry,
I used google and rang a local Mac shop and they have told me they no longer stock the extreme cards and ill be lucky to make it wireless with third party PCI-E cards.

I just wanted to ask before i buy something that isnt going to work thats all

Cheers
