Macmini forum,
I have an older Mac Mini and need advice on solutions for going wireless. I recently moved to a new home and cannot set-up workstation to connect direct into cable modem or router.

I have one of the initial Mac Mini models that does not have the airport extreme or blue tooth hardware, the antennae, or the mezzanine hardware. The cost of this hardware is pretty high.

I am looking for an economical external wireless solution. I prefer to connect to my airport express base station if possible that I am using for my other computer.

Thanks,

fkturner

I just bought a Newertech Maxpower USB adapter for my older G4 Mac mini. The software that comes with it is kind of crappy (I had to reinstall it again with 10.5.4 for example), but it works well otherwise. It's not that expensive either. I would give it a look.
