Has anyone had any luck with wireless on ibook G4? Iknow there was code on the net as long as 3-6 months ago, I was just wondering if anyone has fooled with it or had any luck with it. I did a quick search on the forums and didn't see anything so I apologize if this post is redundant.
Also if anyone knows where to look or have seen any tutorials that claim to be successful that would be great, if I had wireless on FC4 I would use it instead of OSx all the time, but as it is it is primarily used for wireless internet related tasks making linux almost useless to me on my mac anymore :(

[edit] i did spend several hours messing with the code when I found it, with extremely limited success. I don't even know that the developers had full functionality but if my memory serves me well some of them were able to connect to their broadcast networks. Thats right, I forgot where I found it.

Well I guess I've answered myself.
I found a test kernel at: https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-test-list/2005-December/msg00820.html
I didn't realize they were planning to inlcude the driver with rawhide :-D
there is also some code at :http://bcm43xx.berlios.de/
I guess this woulda been better off in the test releases forum.
