    It seems that the Airport Extreme card that came in my ibook is a bit on the limited side, particularly it lacks the ability to do a couple of things that would make it a very useful wireless networking tool:
    1) Cant change the MAC address, even though you can on the wired ethernet interface in the ibook
    2) Doesnt support a passive/promiscous/packet sniffing mode

    Does anybody have suggestions for a 3rd party product that could be used with the current ibook g4 that does support these things?

    Any advice appreciated...
