802.11n for my Mac Pro

Remember how I was trying to get 802.11n working on my Mac Pro? According to Apple's site, I at least had the hardware all along:

These Mac computers support 802.11n in the new AirPort Extreme Base Station using the included enabler software:

  • iMac with Intel Core 2 Duo (except 17-inch, 1.83GHz iMac)
  • MacBook with Intel Core 2 Duo
  • MacBook Pro with Intel Core 2 Duo
  • Mac Pro with AirPort Extreme card option
The new Airport Extreme Base Station (which I just ordered) comes with software to enable my Mac Pro's 802.11n support. I also ordered the Apple TV. I'll be streaming HD video to my bedroom TV in no time.

It surprises me you're continuing down this road after your series of posts about removing the DRM from iTunes music. Granted, they may be the lesser of all the various DRM evils, but it's still DRM.

I can use the iTunes infrastructure with ripped CDs and DVDs, too (which don't have DRM). I'm also looking into the new Slingbox, but I'll need a fast wireless network either way.

I would imagine you could set up an ad hoc network from your Mac Pro and connect to that. I have to get a router because my cable connection isn't near my computer.
