Hi - I have a 2 x 2.66 Dual Core G5 Powermac that needs a new ethernet port fitting as the original two ports have stopped working. Can anyone suggest what I should be looking for as I'm a bit confused as to what is compatible i.e PCI/PCI-X/PCI-Express. Any help suggestions would be much appreciated.

This is where I'm confused - after intial searching a person on another site had suggested a Netgear GA311 so I purchased one - but it doesn't seem to fit into any of the slots - could this be because it's PCI and not PCI-X?

Looks like you just need a standard PCI card, but the Realtek chipset will work best with a G5

Realtek RTL8139D PCI Ethernet Card - Networking Card

PCI cards work in PCFI X slots, but sounds like you got a PCI Express card which is for later model G5s

There is no 2.66GHz G5. Sure this is not an iMac Dual Core?

The PCI slots with the battery enclosure sure looks like a Mac Pro. If so G5 cards will not work.

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!
