    Hi everyone

    I picked up a pci link sys wireless G card that I was hoping to use with my Power Mac G3. So far I have had bad luck getting non Mac cards but after a search online I believe people have had it running on their power macs. Only problem is I can't find the drivers to use as realteks has been merged with another company. Would anyone have a source for the 10.4 driver?

    Thanks

    The v4 uses the Ralink RT2560 chipset and a driver package can be downloaded from here.

    It downloads as an .exe application, would you know how I can run this?

    Funny! On the search page it shows as Mac and on the download page it shows as Windows. Let me track down another link!

    I emailed their support and will update with any information!

    As usual Intell comes forth and saves the day. I still emailed them but that should be the right driver either way.

    Unfortunately it doesn't seem to work. The computer in network settings has the option for a "pci ethernet slot" but the wireless utility says, "No Device!!"
