I'm looking for the airport drivers for my Powerbook G4 model 3,5 (link) Where can i find those?

share|improve this question

Broadcom, that makes the wifi chipset for the airport, only releases x86 non-free drivers for linux. So getting the wifi to work is unlikely. Broadcom supposedly is now producing an open source driver but I think the hardware it supports is limited to new hardware. (it is also only in kernels newer than Precise)
