    Ok can someone please help me before i go insane... I bought a wireless usb adapter for my powermac g4 (dual 1ghz) argos website Mac compatible... got it home it wasnt!

    I then bought a belkin PCI card to fit inside and it looks like its a pci express one? this one: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=400140252550

    But when i opened my mac i only have 2 types of pci slots 4x large pci and 1x pci express (but thats taken up by graphics card)... i assume it doesnt go into one of these large ones... can someone please point my in the right direction to which one i need before i waste any more money :(

    this is the same kind of g4 i have:
