    If it is Ralink based, I think Edimax bothered to produce/adapt PPC drivers. Theirs might work if you can identify the right chipset used in the Tenda. Otherwise, a PCIe carrier card with a 2006-era Apple Broadcom WiFi mini-PCIe card is the way to go.

    Another new machine, this time a dual core 2.0ghz G5, which FLIES compared to my DP 2.0ghz G5. This one has the stock Geforce 6600LE and 2gb RAM upgrade, and does smooth 720p video in the latest Leopard Webkit (an awesome release!):

    I know it's not PPC but my boring daily driver, but I really like the Jaguar-esque logo. Using it on all my 10.3-or-newer installations now. And I couldn't help replacing the aluminum ACD icon with one that more accurately matches my setup ;)

    Tiger on an original ("early 2008") MacBook Air.

    Leopard on an original ("late 2010") 11-inch MacBook Air. I had to remove the Nvidia kexts for it to boot but it correctly reports the GPU nonetheless.

    EDIT: Oops, not PPC either, sorry! (But some might like the screens nonetheless.)

    Mac Mini (original, overclocked to 1.42ghz) running OS 9.2.2 Unsupported (identifies as a Cube). Works great with some minor glitches:

    My PowerBook G4 12". I did have the max 1.25GB of RAM, but the 1GB stick died, so I threw the 512MB back in. I use this machine daily for writing because I love the keyboard!

    Updated my LeopardRebirth themed About This Mac to accurately show the version and use @AphoticD's super nice Leopard icon. Thanks for sharing that!

    My PowerBook G4 15" daily use machine :)
    With a 160Gb Hard drive :)

    It came with the 100Gb 7200 Hdd. I'm hoping to find some other mac to install it.

    Here is my 'about this Mac' screen.
    I love that the PPC community keep these beautiful machines running and alive!

    iMac G3 DV SE 400. Normally it runs 9, but that install has become super unstable, so I installed 10.4.11 for now. This machine serves as an IRC client, ssh terminal, music and podcast player, Audacity workstation, and Photoshop 7.0 machine.

    15" PowerBook G4. I pretty much use this as a daily driver laptop.

    I wish I could daily a PowerPC. Browsing is a deal breaker for me. Almost everything else I could do, but my work is browser-heavy.

    For some reason, the faster PowerBooks actually do a decent job of web browsing. There's a couple things that slow it down, FaceBook and YouTube respectively. I'm posting from the PB in my above screenshot ;) Quite usable.

    I've tried with my iBook G4 and PB G4 17, but it's never quite fast enough. A lot of my work is in Google Docs, which is pretty brutal.

    Have you tried different user agents - they're selectable from the Develop menu in Safari/Webkit.

    Yes, but my problem is my workflow requires a lot of tabs, and that's usually a problem.

    Well I wouldn't recommend a browser for Facebook or Youtube anyway - for Facebook a FoxBox or @wicknix 's app and Youtube, TenFiveTube (again from @wicknix ) or SMTube.
