This document is written using a “vanilla” configuration of Lion 10.7.2, any user of this guide should be
aware that third party programs may interfere with configuring the wireless network. This guide is
intended as a “best effort” setup. The steps detailed in this guide have been tested and working on a
fully patched and up to date Apple Mac Mini (2011) running Lion 10.7.2, using the built in Airport card.
