I have a MacBook Pro 1.83 GHz Core Duo. The airport card in it has 2 antennas, just like the Apple TV, so I thought that I could just drop the card from my Apple TV into my MBP and improve my network speed drastically.

Here's the problem. This is what i see in System Profiler after the switch:

Interfaces:

 en1:
   Card Type:	AirPort Extreme  (0x14E4, 0x87)
   Firmware Version:	Broadcom BCM43xx 1.0 (5.10.91.26)
   Locale:	ETSI
   Country Code:	NA
   Supported PHY Modes:	802.11 a/b/g
   Supported Channels:	1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13
   Status:	Connected

So, no 802.11n to be seen. I run OS X 10.6. Out of desperation I tried the Apple Airport Enabler (yeah, I know it's only for Tiger users, but whatchagonnado?) Any ideas? --staed 22:04, 27 December 2009 (CET)
