Use a D-Link DWL-G122 USB WiFi Dongle - revisited

If you like to keep things clean by knowing that everything is installed inside your older iMac, you don't want to spring for the overpriced AirPort Card, you don't want to play with 3rd party drivers like ralink ones, you are happy with 802.11b (11 mbit) bandwidth, and are willing to tear apart a PC Card in search of a true AirPort Card alternative, check out these links:

The great thing about going this route is, your older iMac or iBook will think that you have installed a regular AirPort Card and you not need to install any third party software, as the builtin AirPort software works just fine. You can score an Orinoco Wavelan Silver PC card for about $35.00 on eBay.
