    My fiance has an old iBook G3, which uses the old Airport cards. Everywhere I've seen them, they're in the $100+ range, which is more than she's willing to pay for wireless access. I was wondering how good OS X support is for generic Wifi adaptors (from companies like Zyxel, for example, or other small companies), or if she definitely needed to go with a Belkin or Linksys. We're in college and about to get married, so price is important, even if it's not a huge difference, but she can't get online very easily at school right now and it would be very beneficial to her to be able to do so. Any suggestions would be great.

    Buy from a Mac dealer that has tested the product first, like this.

    Actually, I just found that same model at NewEgg for $19 instead of OWC's $35. Thanks though.
