I have a PowerMac G4 that is not compatible with AirPort Extreme. I don't really want to go hunting around eBay and used stores to find an original AirPort (unless I REALLY have to). Is there any other hardware that I could buy to allow me to connect wirelessly? A PCI card that works?

I think a USB WiFi Dongle would do it

as well as an AirExtreme PCI wireless adapter.

Save yourself some cash. Get one of these. Same chipset as the airport extreme, 30 bucks cheaper.
