    Installing an Airport Extreme card in a G5 PM is about as easy as you can get. It'll take all of 30 seconds once you've got the side panel off, and most of that time will be taken up making sure it's firmly seated and the antenna cable firmly attached.

    Don't know about BT though... I doubt it's any harder, but I didn't get one of those!

    Airport Extreme is easy just as za9ra22 said. Regarding Bluetooth, I just bought a D-Link USB-Bluetooth dongle and put it in one of the USB ports. One thing I did notice was that you have to put it in one of the ports on the back. I have one of the new cinema displays and when I put it in the back of it, it didn't work. Not sure why - can anyone else explain this?

    The dongle's are cheap and easy to install - I suggest going up that avenue.
