I get the following message when I try to scan with passive mode (Airport

"Could not enable monitor mode for Airport Extreme.
Passive mode for Airport Extreme does not work with MacBookPros and recent
Mac Minis, as they have different Airport Extreme Hardware."
I was confused by this message since it said "Passive mode for AE does not
work for MacBookPros and recent Mac Minis," where I have a regular MacBook
(not pro). It is pretty new so maybe it uses the same Airport Extreme
Hardware that doesn't work? Active mode works fine. Is anyone else having
this problem? Any help would be appreciated.
