The wireless PCI card is going to be the best solution if you want your PowerBook to stay portable and wifi at the same time. Or you could buy a wireless access point and plug that into your PowerBook, they are cheaper but you sacrifice mobility for it.

Looking for a PowerMac G4 for $500 or less USD.
