    I just bought a REV A iMac (20" 1.8 Ghz 265mb Ram...) for 150€ on Ebay :D

    It has one Problem though(thats why it was so cheap) the ethernet Port is broken :( and it does not have Wifi Build in.... :(

    So my question is, which Airport adapter do I need? or too keep it cheap, which USB wifi adapter will work on Power PC .

    I also do not really need wifi since the router will be on the same table as the iMac so is there a USB--->Ethernet adapter that will work(cheap?!) thx :D

    According to comments on the Apple Store, the Apple USB->Ethernet adapter works on the G5 iMac.

    Yes. It works on just about anything, according to the comments. Minis, Power Macs, iMacs (both G5 and Intel).
