    Right now, I have a Westell model 6100 ethernet modem connected to my Powerpc G4 eMac running 10.4.11, connected via the ethernet cord

    I have a playstation 3 downstairs that I want to connect to the internet wirelessly

    internet connection is 1 Mbps (128 kb/s)

    My eMac doesn't have AirPort and I don't want to buy unless it is absolutely necessary

    -Can I get a wireless router, connect to my eMac using the ethernet cord, and use the WiFi to connect to the PS3??

    -What wireless router will work for a 10.4.11 powerpc mac? i need one that doesn't have any CD software as my CD player is broken/unusable.

    Thank you in advance.

    I have a Linksys WRT54GL that is connected via ethernet cable to my switch (which is connected to my router). I have DHCP disabled (because my wired router already provides that) and it supplies the wireless network for my home. It has ethernet ports on the back (4 I think) so you can plug into it and also have wireless as well. Our Wii connects wirelessly to it, if that helps you any.

    got it

    Just bought a year 2004 wireless router at a yard sale for 10 bucks!

    MyEssentials (Belkin) Wireless G Router

    worked perfectly :)

    My older model AirPort Extreme works fine with 10.4.11 and the required software "Airport Utility" is part of the Operating system and upgradeable via software update.
