    Maybe you could restate the situation with a little more detail...as well as use some punctuation in your post (such as periods)...so that your message is a little easier to read & understand.

    Thanks,

    If I am correct, you are saying that when you install your AirPort Extreme card into your iMac, you get a kernel panic, correct?

    Does it panic upon startup or after you boot into OS X?

    It seems that the card is most likely defective. Try a different card and see if it works properly, if not, it may be a logic board problem.
