They have wireless cards that go into the expansion slot on the side

There are numerous brands with PC cards and USB adapters to pick from. The trick is finding one that has the right Mac OS driver.

My situation is that I have an old Power Computing clone running OS 9.1. I searched far and wide to find what I needed. I ended getting a Wireless USB Adapter from MacWireless.com. I got it today as a matter of fact and so far so good. I have a D-Link DI-624 Wireless Broadband Router. So far the only hiccup I have come across is that I can't get the USB Adapter to accept encryption keys for thre D-Link router.

MacBidouille has this info for Belkin products: http://www.hardmac.com/niouzcontenu.php?date=2003-08-04#331

Good luck and happy hunting. :)
