Wireless internet on eMac with 10.2.8
Anyone have any insights to getting a wireless USB adapter for an eMac running Mac OS 10.2.8?
My landlords, an older retired couple, recently got cable modem access specifically so I could have it. They are the coolest, nicest people on earth. I'd like to get them on my wireless network as a "thank you", but their computer is a bit old!
All the wireless adapters I saw at Best Buy were for 10.3 or later.

The emac has a slot for an original airport card. Have you checked the emac to see if it already has it installed? If not, I'm sure you could purchase one. They are kind of expensive, used, and only 802.11b, but it will definitely be compatible.
EDIT: actually depending on the model, it might support an Airport Extreme Card which could give them G speeds. Either way, a better solution would probably be to just upgrade the OS.
Mac Mini, 24" ACD, Macbook Pro, iPhone, iPad
RIP Steve, You're an inspiration to us all
