    iMacs that slow won't take Airport cards, but you could get a USB wireless adapter to work. A powermac should be able to take a PCI card. Both of these depend on you running a fairly up to date version of OS X.

    Look at newegg.com for wireless adapters and look for ones that are Mac compatible.

    Beige colored tower type Mac?

    Is there a monitor built in?

    What OS are you running?

    I think I had that Mac. It doesn't have a USB port, but it does have a few PCI slots. But if I'm not wrong there was a built-in monitor one and a desktop-only one (sub-divided in tower and landscape). I never tried a wireless card, but since it was the first lot of G3s it's gonna be heavy for the system to manage with that.

    Try going here if you're still having problems identifying what computer you have: http://www.apple-history.com/?

    It lists every model produced by Apple. We can't really help you if we don't know what kind of machine you have.

    EDIT: 1000th post! :D
