    My nephew has an old iMac DV 300mhz G3 (grey) running 10.4.x
    It has no internal Airport card, so I suggested he get a USB dongle. His parents already have a LynkSys wireless router running in the house.
    Would a little Belkin from BestBuy or Target work?
    Or can somebody suggest another?

    Thanks

    it is kind of hit and miss, I know, I've looked into one for my ibook with it's airport card connection issue...
    the TRENDnet TEW-424UB (802.11g)has the most compatibility with leopard and tiger
    you can get them at tigerdirect or i think I heard fry's has them..
    Check out this thread from lowendmac as they are talking about usb wireless dongles, many links in it...
    as well, afterthemac.com has a proprietary type 802.11n adapter they sell, can check it out too.
    hope that helps.
    PS there IS a few old lists of compatible usb wireless devices and drivers floating around on the forums, you'll have to look for them though...
