The airport extreme Base station has network ports (ethernet ports) so you can connect your mac mini to one of them and get the maximum speed you can have. Cheaper connection than the USB dongle and better performance if you don't need portability. If your airport extreme Base station is already configured for a wireless network just connect the network cable from the station to your mini and that's it. If the Base station is not configured then connect the same network cable from your mac to the base station and use the airport utility software that comes with 10.5.8 in the -> Applications->Utilities folder to configure a network or connect directly to the internet modem if you don't have other computer on the network. .
