    Alternative to Airport
    Hi all!

    I have a question I hoipe you can help me with. I have a PowerMac G4 which I would like to join my wireless network at home. However, the old Airport cards are pretty expensive (going for 40-80 on eBay). I was wondering if there is an alternative?
    I have a Netgear USB wireless dongle for my PC but when i tried it in the Mac it didn't pick it up and I couldn't find drivers.

    Can anyone help me out here?

    Thanks!!

    Specs:
    MacBook Pro | LED Cinema Display | iPhone 4 | iPad 2
    You need to get a dongle that has Mac drivers or is compatible with a Mac.

    Same chip set as the airport extreme. I've got one in both of my powermac g4's and they work great.
