10.6: Avoid a DHCP issue with Dual Band Airport Extreme
Authored by: hengelr on Apr 21, '10 02:30:16AM
I bought a Macbook Pro 13" two weeks ago. I already had an iBook (g), PS3 (g) and PSP (g) connected over wifi to a dual band Airport Extreme. (I also have the latest model iMac and a HD wired to the AE). I use the setting WPA/WPA2 and 802.11n / g compatible. This results in one 'tranmitter' in the AE using WPA and 802.11g and the other WPA2 and 802.11n. Both having the same airport network name. After a 2 days the MacBook started to have problems obtaining an IP adres after opening the lid. I think the problem is that somtimes it tries to connect to the n network (requiring an WPA2 key) and sometimes to the g network (requiring an WPA key). Is there a way to force the MacBook in always using the n network?
