I use my OS X Server machine with an Apple AirPort Base Station (the first series) attached to it. This is the server.
The client is an iMac (Bondy Blue, 350 Mhz G3) with an airport card in it.
Next to that I also bought (april 2002) an tangerine iBook, that also has an airport card in it.
The funny thing is, the iMac is also connected to the OSXS (and to internet) through ethernet,
and the iBook is also easy to connect to them through internet...
so I ask you: What is the use of the Wireless connection?
I tell you: I am a big boy, so I need big toys :)
