simplified AccessPointAccess Point, Access-Point, Excepting, Excerpting, Except, Excerpt, Expound, Excellent, Expand, Expend [11], and one of the first 802.11b [12] devices
to become generally available at a reasonable price.

There are now five variants of the Airport Base Station: the
first-gen "Graphite", the second edition (two Ethernet ports), the
Extreme (54mbs 802.11g), and the Express (54mbs 802.11g) which also
acts as a cross-platform USBSUB, USN, SB, US, USA, USO, USS, USE, USU, USP printer server and iTunestunes, attunes, atones, tines, tune's, tuners, tynes, Ines, tuns, intones, Tunis, dunes, tones, tunas, stuns, Tine's, tine's, Tyne's, etudes, iodine's, stones, tuner's, tyne's, Etan's, Eton's, Irene's, Stine's, dune's, tone's, tuna's, Etna's, Daune's, Ilene's, Stone's, etude's, stone's audio streamer

machine on the network.

AirPortAirport, Air Port, Air-Port, Airports, Airport's, Carport, Apart, Import Cards [14] are proprietary 802.11b cards with no antenna,
relying on an antenna built into the host device (iMac, iBook, etc).
They fit in a proprietary Airport slot in compatible machines. Airport
Extreme cards are 802.11g cards for newer machines, and not backwards
compatible with Airport slots. Older machines wanting .11g speeds will
need to look at third party solutions.

All Apple base stations and cards can network with Windows, Linux,
etc machines.

MISC NOTES

* Information on repairing the common power supply failure on
Graphite Base Stations is avaliableavailable, evaluable, assailable, unavailable, avoidable, invaluable, evadable at the Apple [25] wikiViki, Niki, Riki, Wini page. This
failure is caused by a combination of bad capacitors and overheating,
and has apparently been fixed on later models.
* If the modem card is not in use, removing it will substantially
reduce power consumption and heat.
