If you have the new 1.4Ghz machine, please can you option click your wifi icon while next to your router and show us the connection details.

It'll show something like this:

Please also provide the model of your router if you know it.

I have one of these machines. Why would I care and how do I find out?
Option click the wifi and paste what it says.

Why would you care? You may not. 2x2 is great for most people. 3x3 is 50% faster than “great” and better if you are moving files around over wifi.

I think chabig is also asking how you find out from that wifi info what the wifi antenna hardware setup is (the 2x2 or 3x3, or whatever). THAT window tells you nothing about that, AFAIK.

It shows the wireless profile. That information along with the router name can be used to correlate.

OK. Here is mine. What have I got? I have an Amplifi HD router.
Thanks. Something is wrong. Would you mine turning the wifi off and then on and try again? See if it still says 27Mb/s.

Thanks. Looks like 2x2. Your router supports 3x3 so likely it’s a 2x2 deployment in the MBPro. Possible that your router is configured for 2x2 too. If a few more folks post their info we can confirm with a bit more certainty.

Thanks again.

I searched the web for MSC Index, and I see how you can tell that I can have two spatial streams. I'm using the default configuration on my router, and I don't even think the numbers of streams is configurable.

Yeah. Your router is a mesh system. I haven’t used it but sometimes they have more control over stream allocation, hence my uncertainty. 2x2 would be same as the nTB and the Air, so does makes sense.

Can’t read too much into that without more details into the end to end setup. Thanks though.

Any update on this?
We probably won’t know for sure until we get a proper review from Notebookcheck or similar. More feedback from more 1.4 users would be strongly indicative if we get it though.
