Default MAC Help

So, Im buying this right here:

as far as I know, it dose not come with an airport card.
What I need to know is, could somebody point me in the right direction for buying an airport card so ( I hope I understand this right ) Connect to the internet through it through my wireless router ect.
Preferably an item on e-bay.
I live in canada so canadian sites please!!

Kyle

Any wireless card will work. This is what I'm using for my iBook G3, and it works just fine.

Mac OS X doesn't need drivers. Just plug the card in and it'll do the rest for you.

Maybe it's time for you to upgrade to a G5?

That's one of OS X's advantages. It's actually better than XP at handling new hardware. If your Mac isn't recognizing a piece of hardware, it's probably because your system can't support it.
