    Your chipset may not be compatible... What chipset do you have?

    i can't remember what chipset i had in mine but i had to replace the wireless card with one that supports injection. It's quite easy to change but you'd have to open up the device and therefore void you warranty.

    Pick up a usb device, then you won't have to worry about opening it up.

    Some are, some aren't. "Airport" is a very generic name. Some(most) cards are Broadcom cards, others are Atheros cards.

    Yea, you'd break the warranty just by opening them up. That's why I pay Apple $100 a year. That's actually the first time I've had a cert get me a job. The company I work for bought out one of their competitors and they were a 90% Mac company. The IT guy here didn't have much experience with Mac os, so they hired me on as a temp to help him get caught up. I was then hired on full time after a few months.
