That's very strange. Since updating to 10.4.4, my PowerBook works with passive mode flawlessly, and before it tended to cause the driver to lose itself occasionally!

Any ideas why?

Since upgrading to 10.4.4 I've had a lot of problems with the Airport Extreme Passive mode. Same goes for SpoofMAC, seems anything that tries to reload a driver causes it to lose itself, usually a reboot is what fixes it.

Anyway, that said, my setup:

PowerBook G4 15" 1.33 GHz
AirPort Extreme Passive works sometimes
Linksys WPC11 Prism2 PCMCIA card works great

I also have a 12" PowerBook that has the same AirPort problems since upgrading to 10.4.4... seems apple did something to the driver or the driver loader or something


Hope this help
