Yet another spec sheet error came to our attention last week. For reasons nobody can figure out, compatibility charts show that A/UX 3.1 is compatible with the Workgroup Server 9150 (which is a Power Mac system, none of which run A/UX). Can you say "Oops"? I thought you could. [ACE]
Viewing Wi-Fi Details in Snow Leopard
In Snow Leopard, hold down the Option key before clicking the AirPort menu. Doing so reveals additional technical details including which standards, speeds, and frequencies you're using to connect, as well as what's in use by other networks. With the Option key held down and with a network already joined, the AirPort menu reveals seven pieces of information: the PHY Mode, the MAC (Media Access Control) address, the channel and band in use, the security method that's in use, the RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indication) measurement, the transmit rate, and the MCS Index. In Leopard, some, but not all, of these details are revealed by Option-clicking the AirPort menu.
