I have a rt2500 chipset card 'working' with the rt2500 module. The card has a static address (which i want it too), and this is currently the output of ifconfig:
ra0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:02:44:AC:38:43

Now, the issue that I have, is that my ibook (which i need the wireless access for) only supports 801.11b to the best of my knowledge. When trying to find the wireless connection from my ibook (g3, standard airport), it doesn't see it. Is there a way in which i can make sure my wifi card in my slack box is broadcasting as a b, (and pref a g too? but not required).
Any help whatsoever would totally be appreciated.
