    APE card won't load into passive mode. Only the original card.

    Seems your out of luck unless you buy a 3rd party PCM WiFi card...Which your iBook doesn't have a slot for... Wait...

    Whats an ape card? I use the built in wireless card

    When i select the driver, i choose "airport passive" or something, then when i click "start scan" it asks me for my password (because its trying to load the driver) i enter my password, then it said

    "KisMAC has not been able to load the driver (Apple Airport card, passive mode). Reasons for this failure could be:

    1. You selecteted the wrong driver.
    2. You did not insert your PCMCIA card (only if you selected such a driver).
    3. Your kernel extensions screwed up. In this case simply reboot.
    4. You are using a 3rd party card and you are having another driver for the card installed, which could not be unloaded by KisMAC. If you have the sourceforge wireless driver, please install the patch, provided with KisMAC."

    Im not using a 3rd party card, and i dunno what it means when it says i selected the wrong driver (as i want to use passive mode). And a reboot didnt help

    APE = Airport Extreme. From the FAQs on the homepage...

    The iBook G4 has an Airport Extreme card. The iBook G3 had an Airport card (with which they do support passive).
