I have an imac m5521.  I would like to connect to a Linksys G wireless router.  Would I need an airport wireless card for the imac or a usb wireless adapter?  And if so, which one?

Hello, I still need help with this.  Would an Airport card fit into my imac?  Or do I need to get one of those USB wireless devices?

Hi EliasSportsBureau

You have a few options with that model.  You can put a airport card that is 802.11b, most 802.11g routers will talk to it just fine.  You didn't mention which model Link sys router you are using but most can do B and G.  Obviously though you should check your particular model.

Or you could buy a usb wireless G adapter to take advantage of the speed of the G specification.  If you do, buy one that specifically says it will work with Macs.  

The difference in the two are mainly speed.  If there are more than a few other users the G specification may be noticably faster.  If you are alone on the wireless part of the network you probably wouldn't notice much difference in G or B speeds.
