    Question Newbie question!
    Can you use a USB wireless internet dongle on a Mac? even though the packaging doesn't say whether it is compatible on a Mac or not?

    I literally laugh out loud every time I read it. I'm thinking of adding it to my daily vocabulary

    IBook G3 dual USB. And I don't know what model as I have not purchased one yet. I am thinking about purchasing one, but I'm not sure if it will work. because none of the packages for any model say that it is Mac compatible.

    After looking into it a bit... I believe it actually DOES need to be listed as OS X compatible.... Unfortunately, I don't know enough about them to recommend anything specific but maybe someone else will.

    Currently shopping for my first Mac.
    After a little bit of googling I think I might have found one for you!

    Read the first spotlight review for the BELKIN F5D7050 Wireless 802.11g USB Network Adapter.

    Now he references a link that doesn't work; apparently it just changed because I found the page here. The driver you want is the second one. If you read the release notes it says that it is compatible with the wireless USB network adapter found on Amazon above, and only compatible with OSX 10.3 and 10.4.

    Hope that helps you!

    Dongle is a term from the 80s that doesn't seem to want to go away. \m/
    /me realizes his knowledge of that shows his age.
