    Aluminum PowerBook G4. 15.2" SUPAH-drive
    no airport hardware found.
    restarted the computer one day, and i noticed the airport icon disappeared.
    clicked the network tab in system preferences, and noticed airport wasn't on.
    tried to connect via airport, and the computer states "No airport hardware found." sucks when i take it out because i can't use the wireless. it works though if i use ethernet.

    any help will be appreciated.

    ps. i already tried resetting pram and going into open firmware and resetting all. i've also tried taking out the card and putting it back in.


    PowerBook G4. iLove it.

    I have the same problem and it started today. I have a new AP card, but the problem does not disappear after I changed the old one with the new.

    the computer also started to act strangely - the screen is on, but the computer is like sleeping or it switches off and I cannot switch it back on.
    Any ideas?
