Currently I own a Dell desktop, a mac desktop, and a mac laptop. The desktops are wired to my westell 327w modem/router and work perfectly. I just aquired the mac laptop wich is a G3 ibook (version 33.11). My router transmits a 802.11g signal. Is there anyway I can use the airport capability of the ibook to connect to my wireless signal, or will i need a usb adaptor? If a usb adaptor is needed can you recomend one to me?

Thanks in advance.

As long as you have an Airport or Airport Express card then you should be able to connect without a USB adaptor.

Just make sure your router is setup for Wireless B and Wireless G. Your G3 iBook may be Wireless B. Hopefully someone else can confirm.
