just looking for a wireless card (airport extreme? or either a USB or pci version) for my G4 i'm currently using a 500mhz DP with tiger 10.4.1 and was wondering what route i should go? i plan on using my 1.25 DP MDD soon as i get more memory for it(in the mail) i'd like to get the airport card but i don't konw which one i should get. i want to hook up to my wireless network with 802.11g speed. i checked this site's market place but can't find what i need. if anyone knows where i can get one or that has one for sale, i'd buy it. thanks for any help

I have a Quicksilver 2002 with a Buffalo wli2-pci-g54s card in it. It ran with no problem in tiger. I bought it on ebay for $20 shipped. Hope that helps.

I don't actually know anything about the card you linked to, but this card is the one I have that works perfectly:
