My summer 2000 issue Graphite iMac on OS9.2 is NOT my main functioning computer.  However, I would like to bring it online.  I'm thinking I have two options:

 

1) install an airport card if I can find one?  (this iMac, or rather this OS9.2, has the old Airport icons in the system but I remember that I didn't have the Airport card in this computer when it was my main machine)

 

or

I'm thinking this is more feasible????:

 

2)  Set up an airport extreme or some such wireless modem to pick up my current wireless network and then etherwire connect frorm airport unit to computer?

Am I thinking correctly here?  (I'm kind of out of touch with this old iMac so I'm looking for a confirmation that I can do this and want answers before I finish renovating my attic where it's going to go.)
