Hey, so im trying to help my grandma get wireless on her old PowerMac G4. I just did a clean install of Panther onto the G4 and updated it to 10.3.9. Now I need to find a wireless card or wireless USB that will work with this old operating system, most likely a USB wireless dongle would be my best bet. Does anybody have wireless on their PowerMac G4 or know of any current wireless peripherals that would work with this setup? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, you can try USB dongle based any of Ralink chipsets listed on their site: http://www.ralinktech.com/support.php?s=3 They have 10.3 drivers. Here is list of devices based on RT2500: http://ralink.rapla.net/

I think thats exactly what I needed. I am gonna order a Belkin USB dongle based off the Ralink chipset and then try installing the driver for it from Ralinks site. Thanks for the help.
