I have an 802.3 "G" wireless network set up in my house. I also have a Powerbook G4 that I would like to add to the wireless environment. My goal is to get AppleShare and Laserwriter 8 (Chooser options) to show up on the Powerbook with the same options I get from my wired computers on the other side of the wireless network.


What are my options?




G4, Mac OS 9.2.x

    An ethernet wireless router would be helpful.  The security of 802.11b, and speed of 802.11b, the only wireless available to Mac OS 9 was very bad to say the least.  With a router that has built-in 802.11g, you get to keep it on a wireless connection with everyone else, while not slowing everyone else down.  File sharing over TCP/IP is an option as outlined in my FAQ*.

    OS X Mountain Lion, * Links may give me compensation
