from the sounds of it, you go

from the sounds of it, you got stuffit to work. good.

classic stumbler doesnt work with the PB1400, unfortunantly. so, you might check here. it's a page of wardriving tools. Classic stumbler is the ONLY one written for the classic mac OS. all others are for Linux, Unix, mac OS X, and Windows.

HOWEVER, there are a few on that page marked PERL SCRIPT. perl is a programming language, and unfortunantly, I did a little scripting back in school, but I have totally foregotten how it works.

but you might have better luck. Yes, Perl scrips run under Mac OS 7/8/9 maybe earlier. you just nead an interpreter. check here, here, or here. they are my three favourite sites to get classic mac software. just make sure you are searching for CLASSIC or Mac OS 8/9 software, as all three sites also carry mac OS X software, and in the case of Versiontracker, Windows and palm OS software. Pure-mac has a cool bubble system. make sure you select stuff that has a 6 colour bubble (PPC software) or a grey bubble (68k software) your PB1400 can run both.

sorry I cant help more, but I KNOW somebody wrote a Perl interpreter, but I just dont know what it was called. I used it in part with stuff under windows back when I was learning the language.

I think that there is a way that you can hack the airport somehow (not ilegally I think) Moderators tell me if this is illegal or not. you have to use something called tombviewer or something like that and you just modify the code a little in a text editor. here is the link:
everything you need to do this is on the page and it has links to download the software. Hope this helps!

1400 = nubus = no AirPort = no ClassicStumbler

No hacks possible to work Apple's AP drivers on any nubus-based Mac, including the 1400. I'm not aware of any existing Mac OS wifi stumbler for nubus, I think yer out of luck.

Drew (Mr. ALK) Kershaw's as expert on this as anyone, he's sure to chime in once he gets a moment to stop by here. Acute

That would be the original iB

That would be the original iBook with Mac OS 8.6.
