Hi,

I want to buy a brand new G4 ibook. I've read that Airport Extreme is not supported for linux.

I like to use WIFI on linux, so what option do I have ? A PCMCIA slot is not available on the ibook.

greetings

I use a DLINK DWL-122 USB adaptor. The linux-wlan-ng drivers work pretty well, and are available in portage.

I have a 12' iBook as well, I use a Netgear USB 802.11b stick for wifi, works great. Looking into a 802.11g stick with prism2 chipset currently. Broadcom.. where is our airport extreme support!?

So there's nothing for 802.11G?

I just acquired a 12" iBook G4 as well and I'm hoping to put Gentoo on it this evening...
