    I think just an airport will work for that one not the airport extreme

    Looks like you'll need to get an Airport card too, it'll have to be an 802.11b too that Apple stopped selling a while ago. They can be quite expensive next sale on ebay is 3hrs away and already at $120+. Also it has Tiger installed but doesn't say you get a Tiger CD's did Tiger ever come on CD?

    The CD's will be software restore disk etc. but will include only the original OS I'm guessing Jaguar. It sounds like the seller has loaded a potential illegal copy of Tiger.

    A few other options

    You might also consider going wifi via usb. It will save you about $80. Also, if you want to install Tiger, just hook up an external DVD drive...that's what I did.

    I'm pretty sure the 'family' pack licence doesn't transfer when you sell one of the PCs it's loaded on, so it'll still be a dodgy copy.

    I have been watching the airport cards on ebay. Of what I have seen, they are going from 89-99 bucks shipped. Hope this helps. You might be able to find an airport card on this site for 80 shipped. good luck.

    ps. ibook g3s are sweet computers.
