    Wireless N?
    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)

    I recently came across this:

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

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

    Thnx for the quick reply, i just found out i'm plain stupid

    I was still using the old WPA1 encryption which normally does not work with N technology

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