Does a "shimm" help with the Airport card socket issue?
I've come across a large quantity of G4 12" 1.33GHZ machines. Usually about 1 in 30 has the Airport card socket issue (which causes kernel panics and makes the machine unusable when wireless is on) but in this case it seems 1 in 6 or 7 are having the issue. I usually scrap these machines for parts, but since I'm encountering a lot of them, I'm recalling from years ago that someone mentioned a "shimm" fix that can help the issue.
I'm basically wondering if the "shimm fix" is a viable long-term solution, and if so, how is it done?
