Can anyone point me in the direction of one of these that works with Leopard PPC? I'm trying to bring my G5 Xserve onto the network more permanently. It would be much appreciated if someone could point me in the way of a known working USB NIC, preferably with a high gain antenna, or capability for a screw on high gain antenna.

I'm currently looking at one on eBay with a Realtek RTL8191SU chipset, I just need to know whether it'll work with PPC. USB NICs are notorious for not working at all...

EDIT: I've checked to see that I can install the drivers, I'm just wondering whether its a decent chispet or if anyone is using one of these

What about an Alfa USB wireless one, works with my powerbook.
