Hi guys,

I still have a poor old G5 Quad MAC. I think it's still a beast for my needs. But, you know...
...I can't afford a new MAC. (Unless you have suggestions on how & where I could get rid of my G5 etc.)

Anyhowz, Apple, cheeky as they are, never included wireless card, and I refuse to pay top-whack for and airport extreme card.

Any ideas?

I'm pretty sure the one I need is for the 'late 2005' model... the one with bluetooth.

yeh agreed, after having a look around it says you need the combo card with bluetooth. good luck....! what about just getting a USB wireless adaptor? i got a d-link one for my old g3 and it worked fine. definately a cheaper option.

Question is, does your G5 have the bluetooth antennae cable fitted?
If you didn't opt for the wireless card when you bought the machine, it's unlikely that they fitted the cable, so you may be able to fit the wireless card but with no bluetooth antennae cable it wouldn't work properly.
(The bluetooth that is, the wifi should work fine).

Best to check first!

Hmmm.. I think it has the cable, off the top of my head.. I'll again.

If any old wireless thing will work, I might look into that instead. I aint proud, it's too old for me to be worried about fashion. lol
