Hey, I'm having a problem whereby I cannot fit the Airport antenna cables into the Airport Extreme card. I received the mac and the two cables were just hanging loose. It's a late-2005 2.3 dual. The two cables in the images are identical.

Is this is the wrong card? Or cables? Or both....

Wrong card. You need the late 2005 backing and bluetooth/airport card combo. I can maybe get you one local cheap.

You need a bluetooth/airport combo card. Usually under $20 on ebay. You also need the more expensive/rare riser card :(. A1126.

This is what you need.

Look around as you may find it cheaper.
