        It's based on Broadcom.  This is why D-Link, Buffalo, and Linksys 
cards can be bought from third parties and plugged in, and will be 
recognized as "Apple Airport Extreme" cards.  However, the driver 
doesn't seem to understand having more than one "Airport" card 
plugged into the machine, so if you have a built-in it will have to 
be physically removed (not just turned off -- I tried that) before 
you can use the third-party card.

        I understand that MacStumbler already supports them.  I haven't 
had a chance to confirm this or not, as I have not disassembled my 
PowerBook G4 so that I could disable my built-in Airport card.
