Hey guys,

I have a late 2009 Macbook 2.26ghz, 4gb ram, 9400m you know the drill only the ram is a bit more.

I have seen these macbooks do have N wireless so, since this is the only device on my wireless network i did set my wireless to N-only and gues what now i cant join my network annymore, I can however find the network, but my mac does not connect to it and says: "! see administrator"

do i need to do something special for this to work?

(yes, my router supports N, it's a lynksys WRT320N)
(yes, my wirelss key is correct since when i set it to something else, it works)
(yes, i tried a reboot to reboot router and macbook)
QUOTE Thanks

AirPort Extreme 802.11n* Enabler for Mac - Apple Store (U.S.)

but I don't know if that is really required to enable N....?

That was only necessary for the first batch of Core 2 Duo machines (late 2006), before the release of the Airport Extreme.
