    Few people having problems with this, and I can't see what it's supposed to fix. Maybe hold off until we have more detail.

    I had an odd problem...

    With my WPA2-enabled WRT54G Linksys router. Both my Macs lost connectivity suddenly; I had to reset the cable modem and router before it worked again.

    Downloaded this update after that. Dunno if this will fix it, or if that was an issue with 10.4.3, but hey... FWIW.

    Works fine for me.

    No difference I can tell. Sveasoft 1.1 firmware :)

    2005 iBook and Powerbook

    This appears to fix the issue that those of us with 2005 iBooks and Powerbooks with RAM over 1.5 GB were having. This issue was reported here, on Apple Support, Macfixit and elsewhere.

    Apple have not announced that there is a problem, or that this update addresses it. But there is a problem which this update seems to fix, so far.

    Not Fixed

    It seems that the problem still occurs - see the Apple thread.
