    Hey guys,

    So my IBook is finally running properly the way i want and with Leopard :D

    So, my question is does this system support any type of 3G networking? I believe its actually called WWAN? I ask because sometimes im going to be taking this iBook to places where there is no wifi around. At first i thought a simple USB dongle from 02, vodafone, etc... and the relevant sim card with a data package would suffice but im unsure.

    Any info is appreciated. :)

    Incase you need this to base your reply from, below are the specs.

    iBook G4
    1.2GHz PowerPC G4 Processor
    1.25GB RAM
    Mac OS Leopard

    Im going to assume you mean either USB 1.0 or 2.0, if so then 2.0.

    A usb dongle is your best bet since there is no cardbus in the ibook.

    Hmm, so will it be fine if i simply go and buy a 02 USB dongle, pop in the sim card and it should just work? I've been looking at a couple of USB Dongles and as far as i can tell thats how they function but i dont know how they would work with the Mac OS and whether or not i'd need to modify some kernel extensions or install software/etc...
