    i just recently bought a powerbook G3 off of an Ebay Store. i recieved the mac and it is remarkably new looking.. not a scratch on it. now im trying to figure out how to make it wireless... but since im new to MAC i have no idea what kind of products i need. i only need a router that has a range of maybe 30 ft to reach from my PC to where my MAC will be most of the time.. and i have no idea about the wireless card. alot of people have mentioned a USB adapter but i have no idea what kind of product to look for... in my old laptop i just bout any rounter and wireless card but it seeems that the MAC software is a little bit more complicated... so can anyone guide me on my way to get my Powerbook G3 Wireless? any help would be GREATLY appreciated... :)

    Here is one option.

    Using the cards on the Mac shouldn't be all that difficult - I think you can use PCMCIA cards, as well as an Apple Airport card (no Extreme) depending on the model of the G3 PB you have. You may also be able to use USB wireless, but all of the Linksys products spec only Windows compatibility, though I'm not sure how accurate that really is.

    My G4 laptop can connect wirelessly to a linksys router as can my G4 iMac..
