    I use iStat menus to show my network upload and download speeds. I got my new 27" iMac yesterday and installed iStat Menus and for some reason the Up/Down speeds from the Airport do not register at all. I have iStat set to the Airport as the only option and is the priority. I've uninstalled and reinstalled iStat Menus and still no luck getting anything to work. I tested ethernet and it worked fine. Any suggestions?

    I have the same issue. I upgraded istatpro to the latest version, but it still doesn't show bandwidth, just sits there at 0. It's annoying, that was the bit I used most!

    I guess they changed the airport card in the new imacs, and istatpro needs to be updated.

    Same issue here.. ironically, the iStat Nano widget displayed my speed. The iStat Pro widget, and the iStat Menu app both don't show the network speed.

    Hopefully it'll get fixed soon.

    Same with new Minis

    I have a new 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo Mini w/ Snow Leopard, and the network sensors don't seem to work either.

    Hi all, Apple have changed a few things in most of the newer Mac (how dare they :p ), meaning all of the iStat apps (iStat Pro, iStat Menus, iStat Server etc) need to be updated. We know about the issue, we've bought a new iMac to test with and we're working on a fix.

    We realise that a lot of people rely on iStat Menus and iStat Pro daily, so we'll try to get an update out soon. Please hang in there!
