Are there any other options for wireless? I've seen those USB adapter's on ebay (search "Airport Card" and you will see them) that claim to do the same thing as an airport extreme card. Has anyone ever used one of these usb wireless adapters? Are there any other wireless options? I don't have a problem buying a wireless card from Apple, but just wanted to know if there was a cheaper alternative.

There are many many cheaper alternatives but the question is do you want a little dongle sticking out the left side of your iBook when you want to use it, when you need to carry it around, what if you forget it at home or lose it at the library? and your iBook has built in WiFi antennas going up along each side of the screen anyway which will give you better range than compact USB adapters. Trust me internal's the way to go if you can spend the bit of extra money. Check eBay etc. there's bound to be some good deals.
