    Hopefully someone can help. I'd like to install a PCI 802. Wireless card in my old G5 MDD. I dont want to use the old internal Airport card because its so slow.

    Does anyone know exactly which PCI card I can use in the MDD? I was told Edimax made one, but no one seems to know the model number.

    Any help is appreciated!

    Hello, first post do please be kind. I am in a similar situation as you looking to add wifi to my MDD. Other world computing has a few that would work in and I believe is the same brand you mentioned. Also macwireless dot com has some that support up to wireless n. From my research anything that uses a broadcom chipset will work natively with apples airport software. Currently I am using a netgear wg111 v4 usb nic which works however not happy with performance.

    Could you please clarify what computer this is, there is no such thing as a G5 MDD.
    Is the mac silver aluminum?
    Is it G4 or G5

    Does it really matter if it's a G4 or G5? He want's a PCI WiFi card. It'll fit in most G5's and all G4's (except the Cube).

    Edimax does make one. It is the ew-7722ln. OWC has them for $35.

    I have a newertech maxpower pci card. Works great but has been discontinued.
