    I have an early 2008 Macbook Pro 17", and after installing 10.5.8 I am experiencing the widely reported airport issue everyones banging on about! So much so that I've been relegated to trailing an ethernet cable all the way into my front room because it keeps cutting out so much.

    The only difference is I am on mains power (with the lid closed) because I use a large external monitor.

    Anyway long story short, I noticed the Airport update on Apples website after searching:
    http://support.apple.com/downloads/AirPort_Client_Update_for_MacBook_and_MacBook_Pro
    however when I try to install it I get this:

    I have the Macbook Pro 17" Early 2008 model the update lists and I have the problem but it won't install!

    any ideas what could be causing that? Any suggestions much appreciated.

    My Specs:
    Model Name: MacBook Pro
    Model Identifier: MacBookPro3,1
    Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
    Processor Speed: 2.4 GHz

    The 2009 model isn't listed as compatible for the update.. mine is and it still isn't installing! I think Apple needs to update the updater!
