Airport 3.4.1: What's the verdict? - Mac Networking

I refrained from updating my G4 iMac (running 10.3.3) to Airport 3.4 because of all the problems I heard about. I see that 3.4.1 is now available, but I haven't seen much in the way of comment on it. Is that assign that it works fine and corrects the problems that 3.4 had?...

    It works for me on my iMac G4 and my PowerBook G4, but I obviously
    can't guarantee that it'll work for you!

    I did upgrade to 3.4, because I hadn't heard about the problems yet. I
    was kind of wondering why I was having trouble connecting to my network
    in the living room, as I usually do, until I read aobut the problems in
    TidBITs. (Didn't even occur to me that I had just installed an AirPort
    update... duhhhhh!)

    I upgraded to 3.4.1 immediately, and it fixed the low signal strength
    issues. I'm back to what I was used to before.

    I was in the 3.4 mess. All seems fine now with 3.4.1. I have AE, Netgear
    W302 and Netgear FWAG114 WAPs with a couple 17" G4 PBs. Retrospect is
    working again too.

    I chose not to install the 3.4 update after hearing about issues with
    signal strength, but once the 3.4.1 update was released I went ahead
    and installed it.

    I haven't had any problems yet, and as a matter of fact, It appears
    that the update has improve reception on my iBook. I am able to
    connect to a WAP that I knew existed across the street but was unable
    to reach before. Now, I don't know if the AP across the street has
    been moved or not, and that could explain being able to now get a
    signal.

    I can confirm this on a 12" G3 dual usb (500mhz, 10.3.3).

    Both Airport 3.4 and 3.4.1 work fine for me. No problems at all.
    I do not recall reading about any systemic problems with 3.4 either.

    From my perspective 3.4.1 has no major problems with a iBook G4 and
    snow ABS.

    I just ran into one obscure issue that I just spent a bit of time on.

    Recently I have been switching the ABS between the bridging and routing
    modes (or in Apple's jargon "Distribute IP addresses" or not).

    In the bridging mode my ISP assigns the ABS an IP address of
    10.4.161.207 via DHCP (this initial private network assignment allows
    one to authenticate to get a public network address in their somewhat
    ingenious system design). The Airport Admin Utility cannot find this IP
    address with its scan. It could find this IP address with version 3.4.
    Whether this is deliberate or an accidental feature of the revision to
    ..1 I couldn't say. My workaround now is to use the 'Other' button.

    When the ABS is in the NAT or routing mode the assigned address
    10.0.1.1 is found by the AAU scan.

    Cheers,

    Darrell
