G4 powerbook wireless networking

By billenium_uk ·
I am trying to access the internet wirelessly at home using a G4 apple powerbook, the laptop has the standard built in card for wireless networking, so all i need to do is get a wireless access point.

I currently have wired network with three windows pc's connected to a router, and was wondering how to go about using this ISP wirelessly with the Apple laptop, can i simply connect to it using a wireless access point plugged into the existing router, or will i need An apple airport base station?

Good Luck,
