USB Modem to Airport Extreme
Probably been discussed before, but I couldn't find anything when searching. A mate has a new PB and an Airport Extreme Base Station. He has Broadband via a USB ADSL modem, which is currently connected to a PC. Is the USB port on the base station usable with this modem? I thought not, but can't see any other way for him to get the internet onto his PB without buying a new modem with an ethernet port.
Any suggestions that may help?

Well, he could buy a wireless card for the PC and share the connection out to the PowerBook. That should be possible. I know it is the other way around anyways. Maybe thats a Windoze limitation, idk... Wireless cards are cheap so it wouldn't hurt to try. If it doesn't work, just sell it on eBay and get your money back.

I ran into a problem like that before... I just called the ISP and told them I don't have a USB port, and they sent me a Ethernet version of the modem
