    Hi guys, long time lurker, first time poster.

    I have a 2007 Macbook Core 2 Duo I'm hoping to squeeze a few months more life out of while I save up for a sweet new air!

    Only trouble is, the antenna for my airport card has broken. I can connect to my router when I'm sitting right next to it but when I'm more than six or seven feet away (or even if there's a wall) I can't connect. While I'm not averse to taking the macbook apart I've looked on iFixit and replacing the antenna looks like a complete nightmare!

    I'm looking for a usb wifi dongle sold in the UK that's snow leopard compatible. Have googled endlessly but only found things that are 10.4 or 10.5 compatible.

    I know there's the Bear Extender but it's at least £50-60 over here in the UK while most wifi dongles are sub £10.

    All help greatly appreciated! :)

    I had the exact same problem. I managed to use LM006 from LM technologies no problem for over a year, on both 10.5 and 10.6 when I updated - only now has it started to cause me an issue. Just suddenly stopped working.

    What did you go for in the end? As I'm looking for a new one.
