I convinced someone with an Intel mac to give me the results of those 3 commands.

I'll get the logs on x9.ath.cx in a minute.

Here's the ioreg -l listing of the airport. (note that i removed the SSID and MAC to protect his privacy).

Now, the interesting lines are:
"CFBundleIdentifier" = "com.apple.driver.AppleAirPortBrcm4311"

It's not com.apple.AppleAirPort2 any more, so update the scripts.

"APMonitorMode" = No

Theoretically, this would mean that if we reload it with this changed, it CAN do monitor mode!

"IOModel" = "Wireless Network Adapter (802.11 a/b/g)"

802.11a support :)

"APValidChannels" = (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,36,40,44,48,52,56,60,64,100,104,108,112 ,116,120,124,128,132,136,140,149,153,157,161,165)

Damn 802.11a and it's extensive array of channels - how slow are you going to have to drive to scan THAT lot. Might as well try and get lid closed running support again so we can warwalk.
