This one sold by Mac-oriented vendor OWC may be a good choice, and the price is certainly nice.
There are also products that add wireless through a PCI card (since your Mac is a Power Mac). Here is one from OWC, but I'm sure there are other options.
Unfortunately, I don't think you will fine any products of this type that have Mac OS 9 drivers.
Just to note, your old PowerMac G4 only has USB 1.1 speeds, meaning an 802.11g adapter will run at 802.11b speeds. If you want 802.11g, find a PCI 802.11g adapter. http://www.macwireless.com/ sells a few.
Thanks for the quick reply, and that USB card looks mighty useful! For now at least, I think I'll stick to a USB stick, as I can use this with other Macs if needed - and move the adapter around if I have bad reception by using a USB extension.
Also thanks to BDAqua, as now I know that while OS 9 won't work with such an adapter, there is at least one to look for - which I'll try to find. Oh Well, i'll figure something out.
Did find a NEW OS9 one, but a bit expensive...
I have 3 of these, they're cheap & work great with a USB extention cable...
Or, if you want "n" speed...
