    I recently did a Google search and found This USB Airport card. It seems like it's the perfect solution for connecting our old Rev A iMac to the Airport Extreme network. Anyone ever tried one? Any problems? Any guesses as to whether it will work with Jaguar?

    Edit: of course I meant Panther, not Jaguar.

    They did? I wonder where it goes. I don't recall seeing any spot for it. If those exist, I could use my parent's iMac as a base station when I'm at home...

    The Rev. A doesn't support an internal airport card (this is the model with the CD tray and not slot loading).

    Check Apple's airport card compatibility FAQ with their machines somewhere in their support section.

    Yeah I know. I could hope though. And it;s the Rev. A (Original Bondi) through Rev. D (Fruit colors) that have the Tray drives. I suppose B and C were minor bug fixes.
