I would say your best bet would be to get a D-link wireless ethernet bridge.  They are fairly easy to set up and will be easier and cheaper overall.  I forget what the exact model is you're looking for, though.

I'm pretty sure whatever you get will have to be external, and connected to the ethernet port since most companies don't make coms devices for USB for the Mac.  Also, have you tried to get your iMac apart?  I'll save you the trouble: you can't. 

I hope you can find something, but Apple set everything that can't run OS X on its "abandonware" list so any help you'll get won't be from them.
I was never here, you were never here, this conversation never took place, and you most certainly did not see me.
