    Can I buy a newer chip set to work with my macbook pro 3,1 2.ghz core 2 duo? Can I buy a newer 802.11n/ieee wireless card?

    • Jon says:

      I do not believe so, sorry. It’s my understanding that everything wireless is built into the motherboard of the MacBook Pro, making upgrade/replacement impossible (short of replacing the entire motherboard – which each unit is custom built for that specific generation and the newer ones would likely not fit).

      Apple also does not, of course, make external wireless cards.

    The wireless card is too old to support simultaneous wireless networks. The newer cards support an Ad Hoc connection as well as a full wireless connection at the same time.

    Take care man

      Yea, that’s sort of what I figured. I also found out (by random chance) that you can be doing networky type stuff AND airdrop at the same time (though extremely slow). Provided both machines support Airdrop.
