having probs with imac g4 wireless on F10

hi guys, am new here from singapore.. need urgent help on setting up the wifi on mi mac for F10 .. am using a iBook G4

upon running lspci,

Network Controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54G] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller
however, it can detect any surround wireless network nor activate the wlan0 ..

any idea?

i thought it might have a wifi swtich somewhere, but there isnt any to find for. so what's next?

Thanks guys in advance!!

I just installed F10 onto a 1.5Ghz Powerbook G4 15" with the same problem. Wired Eth0 works beautifully, but I'm getting no signs of life on the wireless side, although the hardware appears to be recognized/installed fine. (I am a linux newbie, so I make no promises about that.) For comparison's sake I ran lspci as well and I have this:

Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 03)

No visible networks. Connect to Hidden Wireless Network doesn't work either.
