I've seen a few posts around where people note that they have updated the firmware on their Airport (not extreme) to ver 9.52. I booted my system with 10.3.9 & Airport Tools 4.2. Under OS X System Profiler, it reports the f/w with version 9.52. However, when I reboot into Gentoo and load the airport module it reports:

...
eth1: Station identity: 001f:0001:0008:0046
eth1: Firmware detected as Lucent/Agere 8.70
...

Can anyone confirm that their airport module reports ver 9.52? If so, what did you do differently? I'm doing all this in hopes of getting Gentoo to link to my wireless router via WPA...

Confirmed under worse conditions: Apple reports 9.52, Linux reports 4.16.

I can't use WEP at all under Linux, but Mac OS X can use WPA.
