Ok I have to tell a story before I can explain what I need help with. Thanks for the time.




I have 2 computers. One is in the Family room and the other is in my room. The one in my room has Mac OSX 10.5.2 (leo4all v3) installed on it. The one in the family room has Windows Media Center edition on it. It is also connect to a modem which connects to a Linksys WRT54GS v4 Wireless-G Speed Booster router. So thats how I would get internet to the computer in my room. But the computer in my room has a Netgear USB WG111T connected to it.

I wanted to know is there a possible way to connect to the internet on the computer in my room? Or will I have to buy an Apple AirPort for the computer in the Family room?

If someone replies with a WORKING solution I will donate $30 (via PayPal) to that person.

from what I can see that usb adapter is not compatible with osx. If your ethernet works on the computer in your room and you are able to move both the modem and router into your room then you could use the wireless adapter in the family room.

Is your modem a dsl or cable modem? would it be possible to connect it in your room rather than in the family room? that way you could use wired ethernet on your hackintosh, while using wireless in your family room.


for this to work you have to have wired ethernet working in osx first, which you may or may not already have.

your best bet is probably finding a compatible pci wireless card then. look around the boards to see people's experiences with different cards. I'll let you know if I come across anything
