Goto the Apple logo and select 'about this mac' - then click on 'more info' this should list all the hardware installed on the machine you have.

The G4 towers do have PCI slots

Chances are it will either take AirportExtreme or Airport express.

Airport Extreme is dirt cheap and very good and realiable and obviously works seamlessly with OSX.

Airport Express is dear as its old now, really hard to get a new one.

Avoid USB dongles like the plague as they are generally system resource sapping unrealiable donkeys, and only a few work on the Mac.

If i remember the Netgear PCI cards work nicely, but check before you buy.

Useful resource for Apple Users MACTRACKER Complete encyclopedia of all apple products, tells you the specs, what system it can go up to and upgrade options.
