This thing works. I'm using it (right now) with a 1999 PowerBook and a LinkSys WPC-11 card. The only thing I found is that it seemed to be necessary to have the card in the slot, and be in range of a working access point, when installing the driver, otherwise the en1 interface doesn't appear.

It'd be useful to have more control over what the wireless card connects to. For instance if there are several access points with the same name and one wants a particular one, being able to specify the channel or MAC address to use would help.

Don't install this on anything but OS X 10.4! If you install it on 10.3, make sure you have the older version handy as this current version will KILL your wireless card. You'll then need to uninstall this and reinstall the old version.

Still works great in 10.3.5. In fact while it drives the Prism based card (on external antenna) the Airport Extreme driver is running a Broadcom based card in the second slot of a Wallstreet PB. The Prism card gives net access (shared to other machines through the ethernet port), while the Broadcom card is letting me stream audio from iTunes to my Airport Express. The only problem I have with this driver is getting that international dialog forcing me to restart if I eject the card while the machine is in use.

Ignore the last comment. After a little rebooting, uninstalling, etc. it works like great on Panther.

Does not appear to work with Panther. Using G3 Lombard Powerbook. Worked great under 10.2!

Some installation quirks (many report having to install the driver twice, for instance) but once this thing is running, it provides rock solid support for dozens of wireless cards. Drawbacks: many wireless utilities (like the various wardriving/network "stumbling" programs) require a "proper" AirPort card and won't work with this driver. Seems like it's been a while since the last update, too.
