Use a D-Link DWL-G122 USB WiFi Dongle
Authored by: lovenewyawk on Feb 21, '07 10:33:49AM

I got a G3 ibook very cheapily at the end of Apple's PowerPc era. I realized though, that buying an airport card would kill the concept of getting a computer so cheaply. So I bought the DWL G122 off of ebay.

It took me awhile to figure this out, but to install it you have to be in the ROOT account.

Turn on root account access, and run the install program from root. Reboot and the computer should find it just fine.

after this is done, log back in and JUST THE ROOT ACCOUNT OFF IMMEDIATELY. running in root is like driving a car with the engine hood open!!!

Also sorry for the paranioa but i am not responsible for whatever happens to your computer in root.

Nicky

P.S.------i'll come back with a more detail version of how to do this later.
