Also to add to the list, it produces a lot of errors when doing LAN file transfers, via wireless.  Wired -> Wireless, Wireless -> Wireless, and Wireless -> Wired.

Kinda needs to get fixed a bit too...

I had read somewhere else WiSH could be a problem - so I had it off.

What version of the Intel pro/set wireless are you using?  I'm using 12.0.4.0...which is the latest.

On top of that, it works with no encryption at all, but WEP, WPA/WPA2 fail to work

go down to the 11 series
I had problems with the 12 series as well.  11 fixed me just fine though
running WPA2


Any word on this Lycan?

I've got a MacBook Pro coming in a few days, and I'd like to try out the "N" wireless network.

Running in Mixed Mode, for B, G, and N, on the 2.4 Ghz, channel 11 stuff; will I see any problems?

I'm hearing all sorts of things, as to why it won't work, and what might my maximum achievable connection be?

I'm just hoping that I can get all my wireless devices connected without much issue at all.

Let me know!

Thanks!
these use Broadcom cards, so you should be fine
I have a 2.33 and a 2.5 and both are working fine


:edit
still running 1.02 until I see more positive results on newer firmware

Just to correct you, they use Aetheros chips, not Broadcom.

I've heard mixed reviews about it.  Seems to work okay on the MBP, but the max speed is so bad.

So, it makes me a bit upset.

I tried reverting back to the 11 drivers, but that didn't help much.  It caused me to de-authenticate on the new FW.

my brand new 2.5 is using Broadcom drivers in Bootcamp mode, so I assume it is Broadcom.

As for the 2.33, it could be Atheros, I have never done Bootcamp on it to confirm in that regard.... probably should check the PCI info and cross reference that for true confirmation.


as for the v11 drivers.  Sorry to hear it didn't help.  I couldn't get any of my 3 2200BG computers to connect to router with the v12 series.  I didn't screw arond with the router at all, just downgraded the driver and software to v11 and all 3 have been working great.



:edit
just cross referenced the PCI vendor code and the 2.5 does indeed use Broadcom while the 2.33 uses Atheros.

All of the new MBP's since February should be using Broadcom chips. While the older Core Duo, and what not should be running Aetheros. 

Personally, I'm not a big fan of either.  But at least it works.

More compatibility would be great too.
