If you have a built in airport card it will be supported by the os by default. If this is the case and it still doesn't have the drivers then I would suggest reinstalling your airport drivers or operating system. If you don't care to do either then visit kismac's website, click the 'trac' link and view the supported hardware page.

So, seems that the problems for me is that the supplied drivers for controling the Wifi on my Ibook G4 doesn't exist.

So the solution, is to buy and external Wifi device, that has a driver on the KisMAC list.

Anybody has any idea on which WiFi routers can be used with the drivers of KisMAC?

I cracked a WEP with an iBook G4 once using the airport extreme.  But
it was a very controlled situation where I was generating a lot of
traffic on my own AP and my password was only numbers.

Recently I have used a Ralink device (with a macbook pro) to crack a
WEP network (also my own) but with a much more complicated password
and was only using the normal amount of traffic that we normally see.

I am using Kismac 0.21a on an iBook G4, OS10.4.

I have successfully used it to sniff and get info with the built-in
airport extreme and two recommended USB wireless devices*, but I have never successfully broken a WEP network with any of the three. The biggest problem seems to be that none of the devices support packet injection into an 802.11g hub, and I have never made the effort to set up or go out and
find an 802.11b network just to show it can be done.

* Don't have them here to see the numbers, but one is a D-Link stand-alone unit that needs a special revision number which I got off ebay, and the
other is a usb "thumb drive" style (WGL-something?).
