Hello all,

I'm running an old machine (G4 10.4.11 PowerPC), and I'm wondering if there's a way to wirelessly connect to my router. I know the simple answer would be to install the Airport Extreme card, but I don't think it's compatible with my older Mac. Any thoughts?

If a wireless airport card is not an option for your machine, you can always try a USB wireless adapter. I've used these on older desktops with success.

Here's an example of one such adapter. A bit pricey but it will give you some idea: Link

Be sure to shop around. Check NewEgg and Amazon.

Regards.
