I have a new iMAC using wireless networ to a Linksys N router. I bought the AirPort Extreme 802.11n* Enabler for Mac. I never installed it. Does it come from the factory installed?

How can I determine that it is installed?

Thanks ...

With it being a new iMac I suspect that you are already N enabled.

However, you can check by opening System Preferences -> Network -> Info Tab - select Network adapter en1

The last entry on the interface information lists the supported wi-fi standards

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup

That enabler is only for Macs bought in late 2006. Every Mac that was released from January 2007 onward has 802.11n enabled by default.
