    Hey guys,
    A fellow gamer on the DS board at IGN has the following problem:

    "I have a few questions about the Apple Airport Express for my iMac G5.

    Is this the one on Nintendo's wi-fi compatibility chart that has 5 stars?

    http://www.apple.com/airportexpress/

    If so is it generally easy to set up and WEP settings and SSID settings. Will a noobie be able to do this? I think I am going to go ahead and buy the one if it is good.

    Any help I can get is great and thanks for your time"

    He has an iMac G5 but apparently no Airport card. Here's his quote:

    "I decided to save money and get it not built in, it says no DATA in my finder. Look where it got me"

    I told him that that is the correct router but that he will need to get an Airport card for the AE to be of any use. I guess he must have a Rev A iMac G5 since they have had built-in wireless for a while now right? I am trying to help him but recognize my limitations in tech support so I thought some of you might have some better ideas.

    Here's a link to the board.

    Unfortunately the DS board where it is found for IGN Insiders only so if you can help, post a solution here and I'll post it in that thread if you cannot.

    Thanks,
    PharmD
