    Short question: is there a USB WiFi device that supports OS 9 on a G3 iMac?

    The back story:
    A few years back, my mother asked me to pick out a computer for her to buy for about $1,000. Knowing that I would be tech support from 200 miles away, I persuaded her to get an iMac. (In three years it's never been down. She's only had to call me once.)

    However, as she becomes more computer savy, she wants faster Internet. My brother has a Linksys 802.11 access point in the house for his laptop and she wants to connect. Problem is, I can't find a USB WiFi divice that supports older macs.

    Does anyone know of a solution that would work? Because of the placement of her computer, connecting via cable would be a hassle.

    She should be able to get an Airport card and special iMac adapter card from Apple. Go to http://store.apple.com for more info and prices.
