From other discussions on this list and elsewhere, it appears that to use Airport on an iBook G3 (in my case, Dual USB) with WPA (personal) encryption, the firmware for the Airport card needs to be upgraded.


I know that WPA2 is not supported unless the card is an Airport Extended card, which is not the case for me.


I can see my network and set up a password for WPA/WPA2, but when I attempt to connect, I am presented only with WEP, Leap, etc protocols.


Question is, where can I download this update?


Current Airport firmware version is 9.2.


I am running OSX 10.4.11.

iBook, Mac OS X (10.4.11), May 2001 Dual USB

    >Software Update. If there are no software updates, then you have the latest version.
