Airport Extreme

Nick Sayer has written a Perl script for getting Apple's AirPort Extreme driver, now available in Mac OS X 10.2.4, to recognize the Linksys WPC54G PC Card (and perhaps the Linksys WMP54G PCI card)--both of which feature 802.11g compatibility. (Previously, the AirPort driver was only available with AirPort 3.01 software, which was bundle with AirPort Extreme BaseStation.)

AirPort updates AirPort2.kext to v3.0.4... again

Apple released another AirPort software update this evening. This one contains v3.0.4 of AppleAirPort2.kext, but then so did 10.2.5. I guess they recompiled it without changing the version number. Oops. The PERL script has been updated to reflect the new $patchloc (which is 0x4e8ac). After re-applying the patch, the driver works just like it always has.
