Ok heres my story:
My parents just got divorced, and although I will only be in the house for another year I bought a computer for my dads house. I already had a powerbook g4 and i bought and emac 1 ghz with ati graphics on ebay. Now the problem is I don't have a wired connection at my dads..... and the emac didn't come with a wireless card.

My Problem:
$50 for a wireless card is too much, are there any alternative solutions to get wifi on a mac, what usb adaptors are know to work with the emac?(my max spending price ~$30)

My thoughts:
Is the airport in the powerbook and emac the same?

Thanks... any help appriciated,
