Hi,

I am a MAC newby and have a late 2005 dual powermac G5. It does not have the extreme card installed so I purchased the required card (two cards together) and found a set of instructions how to fit it on a German website. Have just fitted the cards (correctly - I think!) and my computer does not recognise the card. Any ideas? Any help would be MUCH appreciated.

Alan.

Welcome to Mac-Forums, Alan Dykes. Is this what you have bought and installed?

Adding Bluetooth to the Apple PowerMac G5.

Here is another website with a How To, Bluetooth installation in a PowerMac G5.

Thanks for the welcome and also the quick reply. Unfortunately, it's not what I have bought. My G5 is a late 2005 model and the airport extreme wireless card is one that comes in two parts and according to apple is one which should be installed by Apple themselves. It is a wireless combo card and attaches to two wires inside the casing. The anttena is a strip on the outside of the casing and comes with the G5. I will try and take a photo of it tommorow and post it here. I bought it here http://www.welovemacs.com/6613692.html and shows the card I bought which is the right one for my machine. The fitting instructions I found here: http://www.macuser.de/forum/showthread.php?t=143115

Hope these links work! I am a bit of a ludite being a photographer more than a computer type!
