    Airport Card
    Hi ya

    I got an Airport card for my Mac Pro and can't find any information on fitting it. I know its as easy as plugging stuff in, but there is three antennas going in the order of 1 3 and 2 with 1 being the longest. 2 isn't labelled but stuck to the rest and 1 and 3 are. There is also a bluetooth one so its not one of those 3.

    Anyone know which are the right ones?

    Thanks

    With all possible cominations, I cannot get more than half the bars in internet connect, while my macbook gets full... even with router touching the Mac Pro... seems to connect full then drop...

    "Issue (1) is Internet connection via AirPort: instead of a maximum of 15 bars in the Internet connection window you just get five or six, even with a computer next to a WLAN base station, be it an AirPort Extreme base station or another brand."

    Maybe I bought the wrong one, I see no slot that fits my airport extreme card. Is there a separate one for laptop and desktop? It is not a PCI card.
