Can someone with an intel Mac do the following things:
Open Terminal and type
cd Desktop
ioreg -l -w0 > ioreg.txt
ls /System/Library/Extensions/ > extensions.txt
system_profiler > sysprofile.txt

and attatch the three text files to an email (ioreg.txt, extensions.txt, sysprofile.txt - they should be on your desktop) , send them to the list (and to me if the list doesn't do attatchments, I'll host them in that case).

This will help us a lot in determining what hardware is in these Macs.

Also, for those using usb devices, try

There were some endianess issues with the driver that have been fixed, but further testing is still needed.

My guess is its doing this because its not using the same wireless card as the G4s. I heard that they were going to be using the intel pro wireless... but that was just a rumor last I heard *shrug*
