    I just recently upgraded my router to a D-link DIR-601 which is an 802.11n enabled router. I've got it set to mixed mode for some of my g devices. Problem is my MBP in my sig is only getting 65mbit/s and my vaio z is getting the max 150mbit/s. Why isn't my MBP capable of this as well? I've tried tweaking settings through router UI, but I haven't been able to break the 65mbit/s barrier. Any way to make some tweaks on the MBP?

    Thanks

    Does the 2006 MBP have 802.11n networking capabilities? I'm actually not sure.

    Yes it does. Ignore AlphaDogg's response.

    From Apple: All Mac computers with Intel Core 2 Duo and Intel Xeon processors except the Mac mini and the 1.83GHz iMac support the 802.11n technology in AirPort Express.

    Additionally it wouldn't be able to reach 65 mbit/s without being 802.11n capable.
