Hi everyone,

Back when I was using Tiger, I installed the 802.11n enabler on my 2.33GHz MacBook Pro (late 2006 model).

I can't remember if I was able to get N speeds back then, but today I definitely seem unable to do so.

I can't remember if I had this same issue under Leopard either.

But with Snow Leopard I only seem to be able to connect at 54Mbps.

A coworker has a MacBook Pro that's one model newer than mine and he can get speeds up to 130Mbps.

His was the first to come enabled for 802.11n out of the box.

My Airport card does register as N capable.

Any ideas as to why I can't get N speeds on an N network?

Same at home. The router is set for B/G/N, and I can't get an N speed.

However, under Windows (via Bootcamp) I am able to get speeds greater than 54Mbps.

In every case, my Airport menu says PHY Mode: 802.11n.

Has anyone had this problem?

MacBook Pro 2.33GHz C2D Late 2006 Model, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
