Apple released an update for some MacBook and MacBook Pro models to fix an issue with slow wireless connection on battery power after the Mac OS X 10.5.8 update.
The update is for the following models: 13-inch MacBook: Late 2007, Early 2008, Late 2008. 15-inch MacBook Pro: Early 2008. 17-inch MacBook Pro: Early 2008, Late 2008. Via TUAW.
Hi, I would like to know if a MACBOOK can connect to any wireless modem or we need a Airpot device(Airport Express) seperately?
MacBooks can connect to any normal wireless device.
Thanks Khaled, but i was under the impression that MacBook can only connect to WEP security not WPA2. Please correct me if i’m wrong.
I am connected to WPA2 at the moment 🙂
My wife’s computer (which is an early 2008 17″ MacBook Pro) is having trouble with a slow wifi connection, but she’s now running Snow Leopard. Would this update still apply?
if the update is available then yes.
I suggest you have a look at the AirPort Utility, did you update the firmware?
