wireless pci card for powermac g4?

Hi,

I have a 450mhz powermac g4 that I am using for a simple file server in my house. I was wondering if there are any pci cards that have mac drivers, that would work. In order to steam movies and stuff, the card probably has to support 802.11g. Any suggestions?

Sonnet Technologies has one that is officially supported by the mac, but any PC pci card that uses a broadcom chipset is suppose to work out of the box as well.

The Belkin 125HSM cards use the Broadcom chipset and work fine, though you won't get faster speeds than the 54 Mbps.
