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?

Pay no attention to that thing on the floor, it's just a hairball.

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.
