    Question USB wireless adapter for iMac?
    Anyone found a USB 802.11b adapted that works via USB for use in an old iMac? I'm coming up short, or I'm looking in the wrong places.

    I've read confirmations that the D-Link DWL-122 works, but only with OS X. If you're running OS 9, I'm not sure what other options are available. Have you considered just installing an AirPort card?

    Try this link: http://www.drbott.com/prod/db.lasso?code=3344-AERO . It is made by MacSense and works with OS9 and X. Airport was intro'd on the slot-loading iMacs; the 333 iMac is too old.

    I use a Belkin F5D6050, 802.11b Wireless USB Network Adapter... Belkin has made OSX drivers... but unfortunatelly this device is not in production anymore...

    Belkin still makes airport and airport extreme (11b and 11g) usb adapters, Macworld even recommends them but Belkin lists them for non-Mac use only.
