    You say you have a Mac Pro yet all links listed are for MacBook Pros, and your avatar tells us you have an iMac. Confusing.

    If you have a Mac Pro look for this:-

    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Well give this a go but it does happen second hand cards sometimes fail:-


    Genuine Apple MacBook/MacBook Pro 802.11n Airport Extreme Wireless Card AR5BXB72 | eBay

    Pretty tricky job installing the cards but there are how-to on the 'net.
