My friend is giving me his grape imac rev b. I want to use it as a wireless internet station downstairs. The problem is that according to Apple, the tray loading crt imacs are not compatible with Apple's airport card. Does anyone know of any third party usb 802.11b adapters that will work with Mac OS 9?

Thanks in advance.

Linksys makes one that plugs right into the ethernet port, therefore platform independent. Plus it won't hog a USB port. Wasn't there some sort of problem with TCP/ip over USb with classic iMacs?

This will do it. You can even get one with 802.11g (Airport Extreme) support.
