An apple made airport card?

If so: which flavor? Standard, or Extreme?

If not: What brand, model, etc.... ?

OS 9 updates?

Have you run all your OS 9 updates? Maybe an Airport update addressed this issue.

Apple Menu > Control Panels > Software Update

(presuming, of course, you have a valid Internet connection via modem or Ethernet)
