    I'm sure this question's been asked a million times, but I've had no luck finding any answers.

    I just got an Airport Extreme Basestation for use with my Powerbook (which I don't actully have yet, I'm waiting for the speed bump) and I'd like to be able to add my 350MHz Blue and White G3 to the Airport network. As we all know, the G3 isn't compatible with the Airport card... so... I need a solution.

    Ideally I'd like a PCI-card, but I get the feeling that there a very few 802.11 PCI-cards compatible with my system.

    I've been looking at D-Link, Belkin, etc. and my desktop is now cluttered with PDF's that tell me absolutely nothing. Has anyone else had a similar experience? If there are no PCI-based solutions, what are the most popular Firewire, USB or Ethernet solutions?

    Try the Sonnet Aria Extreme at www.sonnettech.com - it's pricy, but it is an internal PCI 802.11g card for the Blue/White.

    Good luck!
