There is a Wirless antena that is supported by PC only (Thats what it says) But I am hoping to find a driver for it.

It's model #cg-wlusb2st
Company that makes it is Corega

Any Idea if I can find the driver for it?

I have a MAc Mini

If it's an antenna you will need no drivers! jeej!
but, you can't use it with your mini because there is no external antenna connector.

btw: you start a lot of threads ;)

It's not an antenna. It's a USB WiFI adaptor. If it does not work with OSXs built in drivers and the company does not provide ther own drivers then you are probably out of luck. No one is likely to write drivers as almost anyone who wants WiFi on a Mac uses Airport.

Corega is a Japanese company, and I don't think their products play well with Macs (for future reference.)

It's soo annoying trying to find something out here in Japan, especially if you don't speak Japanese :(

I need something to catch the free wirless inrenet we get in our appartments...

You never really explained why an Airport card isn't an acceptable solution in your other thread....Also, why can't you order the Belkin that people recommended and have it delivered to you?

Because It would be way too expensive shipping it to Japan.

I have no idea what usb thingy would work, i guess you could search the threads for this.

You could always use something like this belkin product. It's wireless router (like any other manufacturers - one or the other should be available to you at low cost).
You can connect your mini, or any other computer u have with a simple ethernet cable.

cons:
extra piece if hardware
extra power supply

pros:
not using a usb port
more processor cycles to (eg) fold
connect as many wired computers as you would like

edit: corega sells this one.
btw: I knew i heard that name before. Turns out I used Corega Tabs (couldn't find english nor dutch version) to clean my dental hardware in my younger, more geeky looking years.
