Good, lets hope it cleans up the problems some people have with AE on older airport cards.

Looks like it fixed my problem with drop outs. I had drop outs when my network was configured in WDS and my iMac (802.11b) was streaming to the AE. Nice.

How about that!! Neither my iBook nor my brother's eMac have been able to reliably connect to the base station (AE) for months. Well, my iBook is probably just damaged.

I ran the updater and apparently it installed as Steve divines. Subsequently I Repaired Permissions and all works normally. The Software Update.log indicates: Installed AirPort Card Update 2004-08-31" (3.4.3) as it should.

But when I open the Airport Admin Utility, its version is 3.4. Where/how do I find/verify that the v3.4.3 updater is actually installed?

My powerbook still loses the network when it wakes from sleep.

Care to elaborate on that? Of course it loses the network; it can't stay on the network while it's asleep, so when you wake it up it will not be connected.

A couple of security updates back, I could put my powerbook to sleep and wake it back up again and it would find my (or any) wireless network and join it and all would be fine. This worked for a year.

Now, when I put my powerbook to sleep and wake it back up, it sees the network, joins it, but is unable to access any internet-related things (no email, no web, no chat, etc) and the IP it's assigned via DHCP isn't 10.0.1.x or whatever it's supposed to be. This will happen 99% of the time. The only fix is a reboot.

There's a thread on it here

Well, you got over your Winndows problem. Hopefully this Bush issue will clear up too (before it's too late...).

Thanks, but I'd rather do what's best for my country.

And can we keep things on-topic?

You've been reported for continuing to politically derail this thread.

There's a political lounge, check it out. As far as the points you bring up about Kerry, try to figure why he voted that way.

I cannot resist before the political stuff is moved. Re: last night's speech: Cheney voted to abolish several weapons systems. The first Prez Bush also voted to abolish, I think it was the B02 bomber.

Truth was somewhat in short supply last night.
