I have an OLD OLD Ti Book. (667 MHz, G4; 1 GB RAM, running 10.4.11)

Just bought a SISCO Linksys wireless-n router (dual band), high performance.

It is set up properly, as my iphone is connecting and my work PC laptop connects too.

I am assuming that my old, but kick ass powerbook does not have an airport card built in???

So, I assume I need an adapter?

We bought the adapter that went with the router, but after i got it home, realized it is only for windows. Did I miss the MAC one, or can I use this one.

Any advice?

Some of the Titanium PowerBooks came from the factory with an AirPort Card, some did not. These take the original, full-size AirPort Card (not AirPort Extreme), which supports only 802.11b. Apple hasn't sold new ones in quite some time, but used cards turn up frequently on eBay and elsewhere in the $20-$30 range.

does that mean I need to get an airport card, and that a USB adapter will not work?
