Q: How do I get the AirPort icon to show in my menu bar?
A: Open the Network System Preferences Pane and choose 'Show: Network Port Configurations'. Make sure AirPort is checked - if it is unavailable, try re-inserting your 11g card. Then choose 'Show: AirPort' and choose the AirPort sub-pane. At the bottom of this pane is a checkbox that says 'Show AirPort Status in Menu Bar'. Check this box and the icon will appear in your menu bar.
Issue: Crash sometimes occurs when removing card from slot. Solution: Before removing card, first turn off AirPort, and then turn off power to the card from the PC Card icon in the menubar: .
Issue: The PC Card menu displays '802.11b CardBus' rather than '802.11g CardBus'. Solution: This is a display bug in the Apple software. The cards are in fact 802.11g, 54 Mbps cards and this has been confirmed with speed tests. For peace of mind in regards to this matter, you can set your base station to '802.11g only' mode, and the cards will still connect. The display bug is unlikely to get fixed, as it is Apple's software that produces it.
Issue: Can not connect to Linksys WAP11 ver.2.2 Description: The problem is with the firmware shipped with the Linksys WAP11 ver. 2.2. Solution: Download and install the latest firmware from the Linksys web site. The latest firmware does resolve this issue.
