    Are all AirPort cards the same?
    I just bought a Cube, and it has a place for an AirPort card, but I don't know exactly what I need. Are all cards the same? Are there older or newer versions? I really don't know much about Cubes, or AirPort stuff. Any suggestions are welcome.

    Theres the older model, usually sells for about $75 on Ebay, which I think is what you need, and the newer Extreme models.

    Edit: yep, yours takes the older model. like this one

    Thanks for the info. Rep for you.

    Just curious, but what is the difference between the old version and Extreme?

    Gotcha. I figured it was something like that, but was hoping that the older version would be Wireless G as well.

    Unfortunately not. The original Airport came out in 1999 and G didn't come out until 2003
