Have a new Mac? You can make its wireless networking much faster now!

Permalinks to this entry: individual page or in monthly context. For more material from my journal, visit my home page or the archive.

If you have a newer Mac (with a Core 2 Duo processor, i.e. something made in late 2006 or later), you can now get an enabler that activates its built in higher-speed 802.11n wireless networking:

For bizarre U.S. Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) compliance reasons, Apple apparently has to charge you $2.50 Cdn or $2.00 USD to download the software, but "The software license for the 802.11n Enabler software allows you to install and use it on all computers under your ownership or control." Presumably, one person at can download it and use it on all relevant machines in the vicinity, therefore.

My MacBook, made last May, is too old to support the faster networking anyway. Sigh.
