You've got seven apples at the end of your post. Are you going to eat all those?

Do you have another Mac capable of testing the AirPort Extreme card on? The first step should be to see whether this is a problem cause by the card or by the slot on your eMac. :)

Well the forcing-it-in part might not have helped. Do the slot and/or the cable connectors look damaged?

I had the same trouble as you when I 1st installed my AirPort card about a week ago, I popped it in, turned it on and then it didn't 'see' it, did this aout another 3 times and then took out the card pushed it in as firmly as I dared and then clicked in further than had done before and then make sure the antenna is securely snapped in.
A bit *emphasizes bit* of brute force is needed
