    Is there anyone that knows what trype/model wifi card is in the 2006 1.6ghz intel mac mini, i know it is an atheros card but don't know the model and I have put the card in a frinds apple tv as the original card died.:(

    But the card dos not work, I think the drivers for that specific card is not included in the apple tv software?

    Any thoughts on how to add the drivers needed, or any other way to get it working?:confused:

    The card in the mac mini is an AirPort Extreme card (802.11b/g) while the card in the original Apple TV has a newer draft n card.

    The Apple TV -> 2006 Mini card should work. I know of many people that have done this upgrade. Have you gone into the Network Settings to see if it appears? What System Profiler say under the Airport category?
