    Hi,

    I have 'donated' my old eMac to my mother. My Dad now wants to get a wireless ADSL router for his broadband connection, so that the eMac can get onto the internet, his compouter can plug into the router via ethernet cable)

    It is an old eMac so the current airport extreme card is not compatable. The original airport cards are available if you're lucky, but they seem a bit pricey.

    Does anyone know of a wireless connecter I can buy to plug into the USB port of the eMac so it can communicate with a standard wireless router?

    Cheers

    A mate uses a Dlink DWL-something-or-other on his old powerbook *I think*

    I've no idea if it's any good or not, but think it cost him around £30?
