I just had a peek at the U of T wireless info page... although there are instructions for OS 9, I don't think that excludes OS X.

The site does say that only 128-bit 802.11b cards are supported, and that the 'g' cards are not... but I doubt that the system would not work, as the 'g' card in your laptop is backward-compatible.

I also find it very odd that U of T would post their network login info (username & password is generic?) and WEP key on a publicly-available website:

Hey, "M."

I made use of York's network for six weeks over the holidays... wonderful system. Well-set up, with good coverage. I still don't know where the transmitters are in the Library... looked everywhere!

York doesn't offer specific support info for setting up AirYork on an OS X machine, but it does provide the OS X version of their VPN client software at https://tulum.ccs.yorku.ca/airyork/download.htm (You would need a York Univ. username & password to download the client).

Once downloaded, installation is ridiculously simple (the new VPN client for OS X is graphical, as is the installer - the first one I installed had to be done from the terminal). Once installed, just run the client, select AirYork (it should do it automatically) and enter a username / password. Everything is transparent. Now that I'm back in Halifax, I realize how spoiled I was up there... ;)
