    Hi all,

    my wife has just purchased a new Macbook, which of course has a 802.11n compliant wireless card. However, at home I have an original Core Duo MBP and an old G5 iMac, neither of which are compliant. I am considering buying a Time Capsule for backing them all up at home, and shouldn't imagine backing up over g on the old computers would be too much fun. I have found this dongle on Amazon, as was wondering if it would make my old Macs n capable and work with Time Capsule?

    Whichever product you get, make sure it has Mac drivers (not sure this one does). This may require a visit to the product manufacturer's website...

    Yup. Ideally, you get one that would work with OS X without need for drivers.
