It turned out that this was because I hadn't specified the ESSID and it logged ontosomeone else's AP, presumably my neighbours.

I really must let them know that their AP is unsecured (I could even log into their AP's admin interface with the default password)...


Looks like we've got the same neighbours!

The iBook has the Airport Extreme, for which there are no open source drivers, and little likelihood of them. I don't know about the Bluetooth, mine doesn't have it, but a USB Bluetooth adaptor works well.
