      Previously had this issue with iMac G4 that didn't have airport.

      Couldn't source any any mac compatible usb dongles and wasn't prepared to try others suggested by keen PCworld salespersons so I thought that was it then !! i discovered this;

      http://stores.ebay.com/Macintosh-Hard-Drive.

      They deliver to Uk and they might just have what you are looking for.

      In the end I bought a new iMac so problem solved.
      My be worth a punt

      Cheers

      Thanks Stevie, we ended up biting the bullet and forking out for an airport card (at almost 70!!!) which is working fine, if a little slower than hoped. We are planning to upgrade to a new macbook pro in a couple of weeks time, so will be happier then with a hopefully faster connection
