I picked up a clamshell on ebay (just because I thought they looked so cool) and I wondered if I can go wireless using my existing set up- I have my g5 iMac and my G4 Powermac hooked up to an Airport Extreme broadcasting my DSL.....will this vintage clamshell be able to access the wireless airport extreme??

Yes, you can go wirless. You will need an original airport card. Also, i believe that it will slow the network down to the 11mbs of wireless b. It will work though.
