    Hi I own an AirPort Extreme (Dual-Band) and a MBP (2.2 SR). When I hold option down and click the AirPort icon in the menu bar, it shows the transmit rate and the channel its on. Mine says it's connected to channel 2 and I'm getting 104 TR. Why am I not connecting to the 149 channel? Thanks!

    see this article about adding a different name to the 5GHz signal.

    also where are you in relation to the base? 5Ghz doesn't travel well through walls and such, so it might not be reaching you.
    I was in a 2 bedroom apartment and had problems getting a 5GHz signal in certain parts of the house. while a 2.4GHz signal from further away was better.
