What is the best/cheapest way to get wifi on a Sawtooth G4?
Depends on what you want. Internal? External? 802b? 802g? OEM?
There are many alternatives.
I have one of these EDIMAX EW-7206APG Wireless LAN Access Point sitting in a Window of a Camping trailer over 200 ft from the router. Never had a problem with it. It's connected to an iBook, it can connect to ANY computer with an Ethernet port.
Works for me.
It has an Airport slot for 802.11b, if that will do.
Search eBay for pci airport. There's a couple of professional sellers there with vast quantities of third-party 802.11g PCI cards that are Airport Extreme compatible. Don't pay more than $30.
I have one in my G5 I bought from http://stores.ebay.com/the-la-guy - it was cheaper than buying the apple card and totally plug & play. No drivers needed, the system treats it like a regular airport card.
This is a lot cheaper than trying to find an original (and slower) 802.11b Airport card for your Sawtooth.
