    Best Way to Get a G3 B&W Wireless?
    OK. Does anyone know the best way to get a G3 PowerMac B&W Wireless? I have a D-Link Wireless-G Router and my IBM ThinkPad is wireless with a PC-Card, and my other desktop has a Linksys USB Wireless-B Adapter.

    I've gone online and checked prices for an Airport Extreme PCI Card and they run for like $99. Then I could get a Wireless to Ethernet Bridge, which one goes for $43 (Wireless-B Linksys WET11) which isn't all that bad. And then there are some USB Adapters that go for like $75 on eBay Shipped.

    And, I've tried making a Proxy to send the Wireless Connection through my ThinkPad to my PowerMac but it didn't work...

    Anyone have any other ideas?

    Thanks,
    Nick

    B&W G3's can't take the APE Card.

    Not according to their website. They say that they work with G3s, G4s, and G5s...

    :alien: I have an Asus wlan adaptor which I bought through ebay, plugged into my G3 B&W. You really need a USB2 port though it will work with 1.1 but you wont achieve the maximum speed. The instructions & cd are only for windoze but they sent me a web site for instructions and link to download the software. It works fine with my Airport Extreme.

    No, I was asking the best way wirelessly. I'm not sure which airport card is compatible.
