Not only am I having an airport issue ,,,my cuff caught the edge of the Option key on my PB G4
Is there any one out there that has any ideas to replace one without buying the whole board?

If the key top just came off, you may be able to push it back on.

If not, the Apple Store might be able to re-attach it. Is your PB still under warranty?

I looked at the key and it has 2 tiny nubbies that fit into corresponding metal holder
One of the nubbies broke off

sounds like you might need a new board. I'd have Apple look at it.

i got lucky and ran into a fellow whose kid tears theses keys off for kicks

The method to put them back on is
take the key ,,turn itt over and if the white spring clip is still attached, carefully remove it from the key...Reinsert it first onto the board then snap the key on. Worked like a charm

The Logic Board is the main system board. Everything is connected to it.
