    I have recently found this on eBay and wondered whether it was worth it rather than shelling out for a Airport card?

    Pros/Cons/experience/advice would be greatly appreciated.

    BTW it would be for an original eMac (700Mhz).

    Cheers.

    Soton.

    Well, I generally recommend people keep away from non-AirPort cards. They can play havoc with a system in terms of anything from the small connection quirk to an all-out kernel panic. Looking through the site, they make it pretty clear it'll work with OSX but I don't know if we can take it as a guaranty. If possible, I'd still get an AirPort. :)
