    My daughter has an old G4 Power Mac (Power Mac 10.5).

    I believe that wireless access was optional on this model but is it possible to install a wireless dongle via a USB port? or which would be the best (and cheapest) option?

    Hey,
    You have a few alternatives. Allthough USB wifi is likely the easiest of them all. But you will need to have USB 2 not 1 ideally.

    Nothing is going to be easier (and probably cheaper) than getting an Apple Airport card off eBay. They're usually around $12 shipped and require no drivers or any real setup to work. I've tried other ways of using Wireless on Macs, and I always go back to Airport because you can't beat it.
