Powerbook Active Scan only? - Current Mac Hardware Discussions on AppleInsider Forums Toggle navigation All Forums Recent Posts Sign In Powerbook Active Scan only? ryanschmidt Posted: June 20, 2005 7:10AM in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014 Is it true that the built-in wireless capabilites of the Powerbook can only do active scans? Sorry if this is a obvious answer but frankly, my first mac arrives today so I am certainly new.Thanks!

It's in the state right next to me and has sat at the freaking place all day... Fedex Package Tracking stresses me out. Reply 3 of 5 cubs23 Posts: 324member June 22, 2005 11:14AM it's a nice program. I was using it and getting plenty of networks to show up. Whether or not another card would allow you to connect to them, instead of saying it can't, i don't know. Have fun when you get the powerbook. Reply 4 of 5 reckless Posts: 3member June 22, 2005 2:29PM Could someone explain what only active scan means please?
