    I have the possibility of acquiring a mac notebook ... iBook G3 700 andwondered how easy or impossible it is to add it to my home network ( 2 pcs running Xp using Belkin wireless router) Having never used a mac I have no idea how similar or different they are as regards to wireless networking or what I'd need. I believe they need an Airport card and thats as far as I know!
    Thanks in advance to anyone who can help:)

    All you need is the Mac and an Airport card which most come with preinstalled. If not you can get one for around $50 ... It should a be as simple as turning it on and you should be online.

    If you have trouble connecting, there's a setting to get the Airport card to search for a connection but I can remember exactly where the setting is.
