    Hi,

    I am trying to connect to a wireless network but my Airport Extreme card on my powerbook refuses to turn on. I go to the Airport toolbar at the top of the screen and click "Turn AirPort On" but nothing happens.

    Any ideas on what is wrong or how I can test if the actual card itself is stuffed?

    Thanks

    What sort of Mac do you have? I think you should make sure it's seated properly first. :)

    Thanks for your suggestions. I will try the ifixit website.

    I went to "About This Mac" and it there is no sign of an airport card. Bugger!

    Cheers
