How to set up an old Mac with AirPort Extreme

Unfortunately, you won't really enjoy the faster G speeds since the 800MHz G4 iMacs didn't have USB2. Also, that particular solution doesn't support WPA -- only WEP so you're wireless network is less secure.

The USB is only for its power; data is transmitted through the ethernet cable, so your speed isn't capped by a non-2.0 connection.

He said it gets *power* from the USB port, but is hooked to the Ethernet port. Plenty fast enough that way.
