    Hello, have used linksys wireless with windows pcs for 2 years. Will have a housemate joining me who has a Mac. Would like to wirelessly share internet connection only - nothing fancy, using the WRT54GS.

    Is this do-able? Any recommendations on what wireless card to use with the Mac?

    Thank you for any tips.

    Mac has its own range of 802.11b wireless products named AirPort. Their range of 802.11g products is sold under the name AirPort Extreme. I don't believe there is product in their range equivalent to the 802.11g with SpeedBooster, but either AirPort or AirPort Extreme should work fine with the router.

    One can even share files and printers among PCs and Macs on a network. For more information, please see File Sharing and Networking section of http://www.apple.com/switch/questions/index2.html and http://www.macwindows.com/.

    yep is should not be a problem
    Im running a WRT54G with a Mac.
    I have an Apple laptop, and instead of using the "Airport" junk, i use the WPC54C and it works like a breeze,
    Both the airport and WPC54G cards use the same broadcom chipset
    Airport has shitty range as well
