OS9 and Airport Extreme

I have OS 9 running on my iBook G4. I understand Apple never made a driver for Airport Extreme wifi card to run under OS 9. I've read there is a driver by IOXperts. Anyone know where/how I can get a copy?

Re: OS9 and Airport Extreme

The only factory OS 9 bootable computers Apple ever made with an AirPort Extreme slot were the 800 MHz and 1 GHz ATI-graphcs eMac models for five months in 2003. IIRC they didn't even bother to support the AirPort Extreme card on that.

Daily Drivers: 27" iMac 2.8 GHz Quad-Core i7 (Late 2009), 21.5" iMac 2.7GHz Quad-Core i5 (Late 2013), 11" Macbook Air 1.6 GHz i5 (Mid-2011)
