|Another under $20 AirDrop compatible card upgrade
"AirDrop Compatible Card Swap
My MacPro 1,1 is running Lion but without AirDrop.
I used the Aug 4 list of AirDrop supported cards (link below) and started searching. I found one (on ebay) for under $16 (listed as a New Apple Atheros Dual-Band AR9280 AR5BXB92 AGN 300Mbps). I just swapped out my OEM Airport Extreme card, the new one works fine.
Thanks again for all the useful info posted for us.
All the Thanks go to the readers. (I'm nothing but a liability the last year.)
