I have a PowerBook G3 (Wallstreet) with a Wavelan Silver card. I downloaded the drivers mentioned in your previous article. My 10.1 experience is that TCP/IP connections through my Airport Base Station work fine, but AppleTalk connections do not work.

For example, I cannot print to an Apple LaserWriter 4/600, which is connected to the network via an AsanteTalk device. If I use the built-in wired Ethernet port, I can print. Similarly, I can mount Appleshare disks via TCP/IP, but cannot mount them if I uncheck “Allow connections via TCP/IP”. Wireless AppleTalk worked fine in Mac OS 9.2.
