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:

     Card Type:            AirPort Extreme  (0x14E4, 0x87)
     Firmware Version:     Broadcom BCM43xx 1.0 (
     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)
