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!!

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.
