Wireless to ethernet

by sandramaxim / December 13, 2006 1:08 AM PST

I have a wireless network setup in the upstairs office. I have a Mac G4 in the downstairs office. The Mac is not wirless enabled, and my signal doesn't really reach down there. Is it better to get a signal booster & configure the G4 for wireless or can I just get another wireless hub and connect the G4 to the ethernet plug in back of the hub?
