Problem #1: wireless card connector in G4 iBook (10.3.9) destroyed by Pepsi Syndrome.

Solution?: Netgear WG111 (v.3) USB adapter

Problem #2: operator too unlearned in setting correct network preferences on iBook.

I did download the Mac driver from Netgear. When I open the Netgear WLAN client utility, it is nagging me to enable the WLAN card in the Network item of System Preferences. However, I do not see any such option.

I also called Netgear customer support. Their free tech support ends at "downloading Mac drivers". After that, it's a pay-for-support enterprise. Not acceptable.

Any suggestions gratefully accepted.
Where have I been?
