About Khaled A.


  1. Hi, I would like to know if a MACBOOK can connect to any wireless modem or we need a Airpot device(Airport Express) seperately?

  2. 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.

  3. 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?
