    Ok, i'm new here, so apologies if i'm posting in the wrong place.

    In my house we have 3 computers, 2 of which are PC desktops, and one g4 1.07ghz i book.

    I have just put wireless networking in the house, and we used a belkin 802.11g wireless router. The PC's work fine, as I used a USB device on them to connect to the router.

    However, I am unsure how to ebanble my mac to also be wireless. I dont think I have an airport card, so here are my question (apologies if its dumb - i really do know nothing)

    Do I need an airport card?

    Do i take it somewhere to get it fitter if I do need one?

    And if I dont need one, then what do I need to make my mac wireless?

    Thanks a lot guys :) help is much appreciated

    You'll need an AirPort Extreme card for the iBook. It comes with some pretty easy instructions on how you can fit it yourself too. :)

    Note: Make sure it's an 'Extreme' card, the old 'regular' AirPort cards won't work.
