AirPort Extreme Q - Mac Applications & Software

I am thinking about getting a 12" PowerBook with an AirPort Extreme card. I already have a wireless hub for use with a PC laptop. Will that work for the PowerBook, too, or do I need to invest in an AirPort base station? Also, does anyone know if the modem that comes standard in the PowerBook will work in Australia and New Zealand? I'm planning on a trip to those countries and read that some US modems won't work there. Thanks! DP...

    Default AirPort Extreme Q

    I am thinking about getting a 12" PowerBook with an AirPort Extreme
    card.

    I already have a wireless hub for use with a PC laptop. Will that work
    for the PowerBook, too, or do I need to invest in an AirPort base
    station?

    Also, does anyone know if the modem that comes standard in the
    PowerBook will work in Australia and New Zealand? I'm planning on a
    trip to those countries and read that some US modems won't work there.

    Thanks!

    Your new PowerBook should work with any wireless device that adheres to
    the 802.11b or 802.11g standards. If you are using WEP on your wireless
    network, you will have to enter a hexadecimal WEP key the first time
    your PowerBook joins the network. After that, your PowerBook can join
    the network automatically.

    The PowerBook USB modem can operate in Australia or New Zealand. To
    change it, you use the Time Zone tab of the Date & Time preference pane
    in OS X. To check the modem's setting, type "AT+GCI?" in a terminal
    program, such as ZTerm.

    Assuming the PC's wireless hub is 802.11b or 802.11g, it'll work
    great. (It's probably 802.11b.)
