So I’m listening to my usual group of podcasts this morning, and I hear something mentioned about Apple including an upgrade to 802.11n in OS X 10.5 Leopard for machines that have the hardware in them. “Naaah!” I think. I couldn’t be that fortunate. I mean after all, I just bought an Airport Extreme last Saturday and, while I admit my connection was pretty much flying from the time I installed my Airport Extreme, that would just be too cool. Then I head to work.
As you can imagine, I’m thinking about it all day long.
I get home, greet Da Minx, and head to my MacBook Pro. I take the necessary steps:
- Select the Finder’s Go menu, select Utilities (or you can go to Applications, then Utilities in Finder)
- Open up Network Utility
- Select the Info tab
- Select the Network Interface (en1) from the scroll down arrow
- Where you see Model: Wireless Network Adapter is where you find your answer. If it reads 802.11 a/b/g/n, then you’re in there. If you only see 802.11 a/b/g then you’re not 802.11n enabled
Here’s what I found:
As you can imagine, I was pretty pleased.
Thanks Apple. 😉
