    Specs:
    PowerMAC G4 dual1.25gb RAM,160gb HD,250 external HD,ibook G4, 24"iMacIntelCore2Duo,2gb ram, macmini
    Ethernet, mac mini G4 connect problem
    What am I doing wrong? I have my powermac G4 hooked up to my d-link router (wired), my ibook and imac hooked up wirelessly (airport cards). Now I want to hook up the mac mini wirelessly. It has an ethernet card. No airport card. How do I connect this wirelessly?

    You can't connect using wireless unless you have an Airport card. Ethernet is only for wired connections

    So how do I wire it when the router is in one room and the computer in the other? I can't change or add the airport card because it is a mac mini and isn't supposed to be opened. Not to sure what to do.
