Hm, I thought the Mac OS X driver flashed the card in the Airport slot on
every boot or something, although now that I think of it, it wouldn't make
sense unless it has trouble seeing the card.

I used to stick my Orinoco cards in the slot on my old Powerbook to update
them with 8.1x firmware back when I needed 128-bit WEP support.

Wonder if there's some way you can convince the mac it needs flashing.  Given,
I wonder if the French version of OS X does flash the firmware, but with some
version that gives less channels.  That said though, none of this makes
terribly much sense, really.
