  AirPort - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
AirPort is a local area wireless networking system from Apple Computer based on the IEEE 802.11b standard (also known as Wi-Fi) and certified as compatible with other 802.11b devices.
AirPort Extreme allows data transfer of up to 54 Mbit/s, and (unlike the competing 802.11a) is fully backwards-compatible with existing 802.11b wireless network cards and base stations.
The AirPort Express is often used to extend the range of existing AirPort Extreme networks by using WDS-bridging [1], which allows AirTunes functionality (as well as internet access, file and printer sharing, etc.) to be extended across a larger distance and multiple wired and wireless clients.

Airports are uniquely represented by their IATA airport code and ICAO airport code.
The traffic generated by airports both in the air and on the surface can be a major source of aviation noise and air pollution which may, in extreme cases, be harmful to health or interrupt sleep.
The construction of new airports, or additional runways to existing airports, is often resisted by local residents because of the destruction it causes to the countryside, historical sites, local flora and fauna etc.

 Apple - AirPort Express
In 2003, AirPort Extreme took your unwired connection to the next level by harnessing the superfast 802.11g wireless standard for data rates nearly five times those of the 802.11b standard that the original AirPort used and many current wireless networking devices still use.
AirPort Express with AirTunes brings your iTunes music in your Mac or PC into your living room — or wherever in your home you have a stereo or a set of powered speakers.
AirPort Express uses the revolutionary Bonjour technology in Mac OS X to allow your AirPort-equipped Macs running Mac OS X to detect each other with no effort on your part — they discover each other just by virtue of being within the range of the network.

The new AirPort gear allows you to specify the MAC addresses of systems which are permitted to use the network.
One AirPort is hooked up to a phone line at home and the other is connected to an ethernet network at the office.
The iBook Airport card looks like a PCMCIA card, has the same form factor and connector, etc. However, one of the pins was adapted for non standard usage and, therefore, the iBook airport cards will not function in normal PCMCIA slots and vice versa.

 Wayport & Airport Wireless Networking
Wireless networking in public spaces, also called public space networking (PSN), is a form of wireless broadband delivery using the unregulated 2.4 GHz band of spectrum, and the IEEE 802.11b communications protocol.
Most US airports are also in the midst of formatting or implementing comprehensive management plans for all radio frequency use on their grounds, including PSN.
Consumers are responsible for providing the wireless modem PC card to access the Wayport network in airports; some hotels and conference centers may have cards available for consumers to rent.

AirPort Cards installed on computer that are running Mac OS X 10.3.0 or later can use firmware and operating system upgrades that allow an AirPort Card to handle WPA correctly on Apple and non-Apple networks.
You can see which networks you've joined, what security they employ, edit settings, delete those you no longer want to consider "preferred," and drag them to arrange the order in which you join if multiple networks are present.
AirPort Cards cannot support WPA2 because of limitations in silicon; WPA was designed to be backward compatible with early 802.11b cards, such as the AirPort Card.

WEP is good enough for most home networks, anyway, in that it keeps someone from parking out front of your house and simply sniffing the electronic packets out of the air with some basic software.

I believe this is a buffering problem where the interrupt networking stuff continues to insert data, but the program itself never gets enough time to process the buffer so it overflows and bombs.

 Cheap Wireless Multi-OS Home Networking
As detailed by Michael Shields at http://www.msrl.com/airport-gold, the Airport is actually a very nice little access point, and not crippled in any significant way other than a lack of information on how to go about using it.
Having verified that the Airport is alive, I unplugged it, opened it up, and switched its silver card for a gold one, turning it into a 128-bit WEP Airport and voiding my warranty.
However, I bet old Airports can be had pretty cheap now, and as they are still quite functional and up to date in their abilities, this information may still be of use.
