Why doesn't my iBook G4 recognize my Airport extreme card?
I have three Apple products with the same Airport Extreme cards installed in them.
The machines are a 1.5 GHz Mac Mini G4, a 1.67 GHz PowerBook G4, and a 1.33GHz iBook g4.
The Airport Cards are all as follows:
AirPort Card Information:
Wireless Card Type: AirPort Extreme (0x14E4, 0x4318)
Wireless Card Locale: USA
Wireless Card Firmware Version: Broadcom BCM43xx 1.0 (188.8.131.52)
Current Wireless Network: wireless
Wireless Channel: 6
All computers easily access a Netgear router except the iBook.
It does not recognize the Airport card that is installed.
Has anyone encountered this problem, and is there a solution?
Incidentally, all computers connect via channel 11 except the iBook which indicates channel 6 as shown above.
Thanks in advance,
Look under the Apple in the upper left hand corner to "About this mac". Hit the more info button. Go to Network -> Airport and see if your machine sees the card. If not switch it with a known good one. Are you sure all three machines use the same card? What's the part number? Is it this card: iBook G4 12" 1.33 GHz or 14" 1.42 GHz Airport/Bluetooth Board
802.11g Airport wireless / Bluetooth 2.0 internal card — 4 available at 69.95 each.
