    I got me when they were released
    a White MacBook Intel Core Duo 2 2.16GHz
    and an Original 1TB Time Capusle
    I had it running on N only 5GHz and it was running fine.
    but now for some reason it cant see the TC when in 5GHz mode. it can in N only 2.4GHz Mode.
    Any ideas?
    I did go to re-run the 802.11n enabler on it. but I cant as it is now running 10.6 on the machine
    I have updated to 10.6.4 that still hasnt fixed the issue
    I really want it on the 5GHz as my microwave interferes on the 2.4 range

    10.6 already has the 802.11N enabler built into the OS. Go to the network setting (system preferences/network/advanced) and delete the SSID's you're having problems with and restart your macbook; try to connect to 5GHz network and hopefully this will get your macbook back working.

    I tried that..
    I got it to work by downgrading the firmware to 7.4.1

    You downgraded the firmware on your TC, glad to see you got it figured out.
