    Which would be better, a USB wireless adapter or installing an actual wireless card? The computer is a PowerMac G5 1.6GHz and I want to add wireless capability to it. Which card is the best and which USB adapter is the best. We'll be using a Linksys router.

    The Airport Extreme card is pretty cheap and easy to find. Even I have a spare one.

    I was thinking that I couldn't install an AirPort Extreme card on that old of a machine, only an older AirPort card.

    The Power Mac G5 used the 802.11g version of the Airport Extreme.
