going wireless on my G3? I want to go wireless and looking at the whole Airport and Airport Extream makes my wallet faint.<br><br>My friend just got an entire Linsys setup for his Dell for about 100 bucks. That included card, hub, everything.<br><br>I believe I read that an Airport card will work with any 802.11 hub, but I'm not sure if I remember that correctly. Also, will any wireless card fit my G3, or has Apple seen to it that I have no other choice than to use their Airport card. <br><br>Thanks for all the help.<br><br>The thread killer
the router can be any standard WiFi, but I recommend to buy an Airport card for your pb. It's much safer and it's cheap too. I think the other way would be to use your PC type 2 slot, but I doubt it's gonna be cheaper to get a non-Apple branded one.<br><br>[color:green]O, beware, my lord of jealousy; <br>It is the green-ey'd monster which doth mock <br>The meat it feeds on.</font color=green>

both my computers have airport cards.<br>I just bought a Netgear MR814 wireless router form Buy.com for 54 bucks and after sending in the $20 rebate, it comes to $34.<br>It works fine with the iMac an iBook and my cable<br><br><br>My Stuff
802.11g = 54Mbs<br>802.11b = 11Mbs<br><br>Nothing wrong with b just less bandwidth. I'd like to get one for here at work (multiple macs), so g would be better.<br><br>Still, its a good deal and I may get it anyway. Nice tip Lori <br><br> -oh yeah, that would be fine for a cable connection. I guess the theoretical bandwidth in bytes would be something like 1.4Megabytes/second. Of course, it won't be that high, but neither will your cable connection<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by Trog on 12/02/03 12:42 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>

It's not airport branding but it will work in your Type II slot.<br><br><br>and of course there's the wireless router: depending on available bandwidth of course, you could sit in your neighbor's backyard surfing away.<br><br><br>If you have a PC in the bunch, this would come in handy:<br><br><br>I have a network of 5 (two macs and three PC's) all powered by the 802.11b standard and believe me everyone's jammin' but if you have cable you won't feel a thing.<br><br><br><br>"640K ought to be enough for anybody." - Bill Gates
