The reason is you need a wireless n adapter the latest adapter in the mini is a n+ adapter so you might be outta luck

Thanks for the info I actually thought mine had that built in. I may upgrade to the new mini or iMac. Not sure yet I still love this one it's a bit buggy with Lion, but that may be a software issue. I think it will turn out to be a nice smooth OS in the long haul. Its funny sometimes when I am in mission control, and click on a window and there are two there. They collide and bounce off each other. It's weird and then I click on the window again it comes to the front to view on top. Like nothing ever happened business as usual.
