Hello,

I have a Quicksilver 867mhz that has a slot for an airport card. I just pulled an airport card from my dead G3 ibook, but can't seem to get it to work, and was hoping for some help.

The Quicksilver seems to recognize it, but I can't get it to jive with my wireless network at home.

Is there something more than just "plug and play" with the airport card?

Brian

NOTE: Thread moved to appropriate forum. Not just anything goes in Anything Goes

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Seems like it is a 802.11b card and it should work in the G4. Go to Sys Prefs/Network and select Airport - exact pathway depends on OS which u do not mention - you may have to configure it to "Using DHCP" as i have no idea what the default setting is. While you are at it select show icon in Menu bar which will make it simpler to choose network at start up if u need to.

I need to put the Airport Card into my Mac Pro 2 x 2 Ghz Dual-Core Intel Xeon. I'm using Leopard Operating system.

I'm taking the card from an imac 2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo .... hope this is okay ... I need one more thumbs up from someone before I get the screwdrivers out! : )

Not sure why cwa107 is giving me a link to the Forum Rules??? Can you tell me why?
