    Out of curiosity, are there any USB wireless adapters that work with Mac OS X? I work at a CompUSA and there are sometimes customers that have older Macs that use the Airport cards that are no longer available. What would be a good USB alternative for them?

    I've been told (on this forum) there aren't any that work reliably on a Mac. A search on eBay shows a few that claim to work on a Mac. It also reveals that the older Airport cards (802.11b) are going for around the $100 mark.

    I've had friends tell me that various USB wireless dongles work just fine. Like the D-Link USB Wireless Key.
