    Guys,

    My MacBook (Early 2008) is not showing an AirDrop icon in the Finder sidebar and in the preferences. My Lion build is 11A511. Is anyone experiencing the same problem?

    P.S. Does it help that it's white? :D

    Do you know what the necessary wireless card is then?

    I have a Hackintosh, but I use a Apple Airport card model number BCM94321MC. I think it is the same as found in 2007 macbooks, so it will probably not work. Does anyone know the model numbers of the cards that are required?
