    Wanna make my G5 wireless
    I would like to get my powermac 1.6GHz G5 connected to my home wireless network. I have been looking around for PCI based wireless network cards because i am not sure if the Airport "Extreme" would work in my machine, that i might have to use the slower airport card......any ideas ?????

    Specs:
    MacBook
    As far as I know, anything with a G5 processor should take an AirPort Extreme.
    Wireless PCI cards are dodgy at best with any Mac.
    Get the APE card and you should be set.
