sorry to be posting again so soon!! (i did try searching in the forums for "airport" and "airport overseas". nothing turned up) i was wondering if my airport card will work overseas , outside of the US/Canada, specifically in tokyo, japan. i'm pretty sure it will, but....?
this is all the information "about this mac" gives me:
Wireless Card Type: AirPort Extreme
Wireless Card Locale: USA
Wireless Card Firmware Version: 405.1 (
Wireless Channel 11

`it's a Powerbook G4 12"
`is there anywhere that airport is known not to work, anywhere in the world?

thank you... >___<

Yes, your Airport card will work outside of North America. 802.11 is a standard around the world.

There's a remote possibility you'll need to change the locale on the card in order to access some other channels available in other countries (but not here, eg. 12, 13, and 14 in Japan).
