Wi-Fi for a Beige G3 266MHz Minitower
Trying to find a solution for my girlfriends old mac. We are trying to tap into the wi-fi network that is running in her apartment building so she can take advantage of faster internet. I've been searching and asking around about a wireless PCI card for her Mac, a Beige G3 Minitower.

There are several options i am aware of(USB, Ethernet, PCI) but which one actually works well with this machine and with OS9.1?

If anyone can help us out we would appreciate it.

:confused:

A Linksys WET11 is a good choice as it connects to the Ethernet port. Downside is that it has a Windows only config mode using Linksys software. But once it is configured, just plug it in and she will be connected.

The networking forum would also have been a better place for this post as this is really a networking issue.

Luck.

Most if not all routers nowadays have a web config. Windows only config is for first generation devices. If you buy any item at a computer store now any wireless router will work, and have a web config.
