    Can someone help???

    I just bought an emac for my kids to use (1ghz and osx 10.4 ). I currently have airport express for an ibook and am looking at getting the emac on my wireless network.

    the emac does not have a wireless card. do I need an airport card, or airport extreme...or would a wirless usb suffice... i am just not sure where to start

    thanks for any help

    Bah, just get a USB wireless card, cheaper and you can use it in different systems without messing with hardware. NTM it'll probably b compatible with PC's.

    what would you recommend in the usb arena. I dont want to be mucking around with something that may not work. I heard some dont work with mac and also different versions of osx and also issues with updating osx ?

    your thoughts
