Yes it is now working well for a number of people for TCP/IP (Internet) and
AppleTalk (NCU). The latest version (alpha 3) works with an ABS (and
probably other base stations) and the ad-hoc mode supported by AirPort 2.0x.

The only major things that are missing are:

1. The network name is currently fixed at "Newton"
2. Only channel 11 is supported.
3. WEP is not yet supported.
