    just had my macbooks ( 1.83 core duo , late 2006 ) keyboard off and noticed that the airport card had 3 arial connections and wires , checked it up and it operates wireless n . has anyone else see one like this as i believed that core duos only got the two arial wireless b/g setup ??

    The Atheros card has 3 antennae connectors and the Broadcom card has 2 antennae connectors; the Atheros is usually found on the MB and 15" MBP, and the Broadcom on the 17" MBP.
