7. I've Googled my ass off, and I can't get clear instructions on how
precisely to connect a home-made antenna to my Ibook without breaking
out tools and voiding the warranty. Is there a way? Are there cheap
--With an iBook, there are no choices that will not void your warranty,
if you want to attach an external antenna.
--If you had a PowerBook, you could use a third-party card. But there
is no PC Card slot in an iBook, so you have to use the built-in card.
--The other alternative would be to use a USB WiFi adapter, but I don't
know which models work with KisMac.
Gentle Kismac sorts,
I've been busy the last 6 mos (yes, who hasn't?), sorta lost some of
the recent threads, but is the Airport Extreme still hosed for passive
I am giving my son my Powerbook (medical emergency), and buying an
iBook for myself like TODAY.
Of course it has no pc-card slot, and they ALL come w/ Airport
Extremes these days.
This snippet of the last thread jarred my memory, and I wonder....what
options i'll have. I did see a few DOZEN plain ol' Airport cards
for sale down at Mac Shack in Boulder, when last I visited my son at
college about 7 months ago...they found a source somehow...
Couldn't find a list/discussion of USB-attachable adaptors that might
be Kismac passive-mode friendly...just the admonition that AE don't
work right, and to sign the petition...can anyone point out
USB-attached nics that'll work? If such exists? Happy to do the
if i could find it.
warm regards, and thanks..
