No. Unfortunately the CORE DUO is NOT upgradable to the 802.11n specification. You must
have the later version the CORE 2 DUO for this upgrade. I have been on tech support trying
to get this upgrade and was unsuccessful. Finally an upper level technical support person told
me what the problem was.
Also, I cannot find any USB cards that work with Apple re 802.11n specification. There are
about a zillion cards (USB, Express card, PC card, etc. for the PC of course.

As it shows a/b/g, you already have 802.11g. n enabler might bring you up to n - I am not sure about that. But you don't need this software if you're looking to deploy a g-based wireless network.
