Well a friend of mine has just set up his airport system with his g5 and he has an older g3. we are wondering if anyone has made a USB adaptor that works with OSX. he has panther on the G3. I am hoping someone here has one, as i dont like going by just specs. i do know this, his GF's HP laptop with built in wireless picked up the airport, so we are good to go with that side of it. just need to find an adapter for the g3. thanks alot!

Not sure about USB, but AFAIK

Not sure about USB, but AFAIK there are some PCI ones that are supposed to work fine.

I've used a belkin USB 802.11

I've used a belkin USB 802.11b adapter. The drivers were very fiddly to get working. Not sure I'd recommend it, but I'm not sure how many options are out there.

Ethernet->wireless

You could get an Ethernet wireless repeater (or whatever they are called) - they're driverless, and just appear as a standard Ethernet connection to the Mac. I mean, they'll work on a Playstation...

Linksys WET-11 is a popular one (802.11b speeds only). Pretty sure they'll have a -g (Airport Extreme speeds) model by now.
