    You don't need it.
    But you should sell it to me. ;)

    If the PM is wired to RR modem then there's no need for the airport card..


    Airport Card = wireless internet connection

    You can also sell on Craigslist.org. Sell local, and cash only, and you'll be fine.

    Depends on the market you may be able to get about $60-$100 or more. The original Airport cards are more useful in the older iBooks and PowerBooks.

    For PowerMac, if you really need wireless connection, you can get a PCI card with G or N.

    You could use the airport card to wirelessly share the internet from the PowerMac G4 to other wireless computers. Or you can sell the card.
