    I've got a new Intel Imac and have a wireless router (a netgear adsl modem dg834), although I haven't made it wireless just yet :eek: being new to wireless networks etc. I'd like to make my G4 part of this network. Macupgrades website recommend getting a sonnet aria wireless pci card, but this cost approx £70. Is there any other way of getting it to be on my network, it seems alot of money to spend on an old G4? Any advice would be much appreciated :confused:

    Well, there are USB dongles, but not all are going to be Mac compatible and they may not be a lot cheaper. Maybe worth having a hunt on eBay?

    Thats bluetooth, not wifi. I would just get an original airport card. They cost about $50 shipped here.
