Can one upgrade the Wifi card in the PowerBook G4 Titanium?

I have a PowerBook G4 Titanium 1Ghz DVI with a Airport firmware 9.52. It seems to only have WEP under OSX 10.5.n. Is there any upgrade I can do/get to give me WPA?

Sorry to say you're between a rock and a hard place.

Your system can only go up to Leopard OS-X 10.5.x as it has a PowerPC CPU Vs Intel. Snow Leopard was the first release to offer WPA services. I don't know of any 3rd party offerings to get you there, besides, I doubt they are still offering the needed software given the time that has passed.

Sorry to revive a long dead thread but this bothered me. Your memory is crystal clear, you did have WPA and even WPA2, on your MacBook Pro, on Leopard and even Tiger. In fact, I'm currently working on a Powerbook G4 running 10.4 that's connected to my wireless AC mesh network via it's original airport card and the security on my network is WPA2-PSK AES.


Your MacBook Pro (Intel) uses a newer AirPort extreme board. The PowerBook (PowerPC) never offered it and can only get upto Leopard which only offers WEP within PowerPC based systems.

To be clear WPA requires AES/CCMP services which is not supported with the original 802.11b AirPort Card, but is with the 802.11b/g AirPort Extreme Card.
