    all new MBP's should have AirPort Extreme (802.11n) built in. Buying a card should not be necessary.

    hm.. one of those "tried it, doesn't work, any help?" questions.

    Some more information would be great:
    Selected the right key (WPA, WEP, ...)?
    Maybe there is a MAC filter and you have to add your new MAC address? Any error msg? can you ping the router?
