    So my G5 (and associated home rigs) haven't a wired connection to the internet because I don't want to pull cable in my place ATM. I'm currently using my homebrew windows box to share internet to it but this isn't ideal because both need to be on anytime I use the mac, and I because I plan to sell that rig shortly.

    Problem is...apple tells me there isn't a viable airport option for it anymore :squint: and also that the mac pro part won't work :ugh: So what do I do? I'd prefer an N option since I have it elsewhere but B/G would be OK...

    Is apple full of it? Does my box have the internal antenni and what not for the thing in the first place? Is there a suggested PCIe wifi N option someone here has used with a DC G5?

    :eek3:

    That's my option for a B/G card if I can't find a workable N part...still nothing doing there but you'd think there would be :hs:
