Going WiFi with an eMac questions...


I'm getting ready to set up a network for a friend who's got a PC, X-Box and an eMac 700...I'm not too sure on the eMac's specs, but it's got a DVD reader, so I'm guessing it's got 10.1 or later.

Do I need to buy an Airport adapter card for the eMac, or can I just get the Airport card by itself?

Also, I'm assuming I can get pretty much any wireless B router?
Any recommendations for PC/XBOX/MAC compatibility? The XBox will likely be connected with a wireless bridge.

Is this the best way to go about this? or should I try something different (ie. bridge for the emac too)

All you need is the Airport Card. It will work with any b router. I have a linksys router , bridge, iBook, Del 600m and Dell Dimension 8400 that all work together.
