When I gave my ibook an airport card, it couldn't even do icmp.
The orinoco driver complained about lots of unknown information
frames and the like.  It took me a while to figure out why ---
and the reason is that my airport card (bought in December 2002)
came with firmware version 4.16.  

Yesterday I booted up the machine in OS X, which updated the
firmware to version 8.70.  Now the airport card works like a
charm.  So I agree with the statement "New firmware good."
