I've used mine with an AirPort, and use a Linksys (54g box)
currently. I found that in both(?) cases, Hiroshi's driver only
works with 40-bit encryption. Not too major of a bummer, since the
full-on 128-bit encryption is basically just as easily crackable.
For my own peace of mind, I also restrict connectivity to known MAC
addresses, but these are trivially faked.
