I'm not familiar with inner workings of your Mac Pro but it's obvious that card you purchased is either defective or you're hooking it up incorrectly. Go to this website and see if you can find out how the wireless card is supposed to be installed:

May have been better to get technicians to install an Airport Extreme card. That model Mac Pro has three antenna leads and uses 2 and 3. Have not inadvertently connected the Bluetooth card antenna lead?

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!

hi harry B the card had 3 sockets on so just connected the 3 leads to them
there is a separate Bluetooth card on the other side of the back board with a wire allready attached
will look into ifixit as suggested and let them know
thanks
