    Hello everyone, proud new owner of a minimac here.

    I'm kind of new to macs, and since I'm a poor student and couldnt afford the airport upgrade for my minimac, is there a way to connect to my families linksys wireless router with a usb wireless card possibly? if so, which one is recommended? If this is not possible, is there any solutions?

    thanks a ton

    not a wireless card, but a wireless USB adapter. U just have to find one that's mac compatable. I have a dlink on my pc, its very fast (dwl-g132) but not 100 percent sure if its mac compatable. I know that most are, or should be.

    I was looking at d-link and other brands and it was'nt fully clear on wether or not it was mac compatible, and that is the main issue really, I'm just not sure.
