    I try to install Brand new Airport card on 2002 Powerbook G4 laptop with OSX 10.2 but can not find any wireless signals. I try it on my friend's Power book G4, it has same problem.

    I use same airport card on 2002 iBook G3 laptop with OSX 10.3, it works fine.

    Need help!!!

    Powerbooks have a harder time picking up signals than ibooks because of the metal surrounding the PB. So that might be why. Try seeing if you get a signal when you are close to the access point or router. If you get a signal i would not worry. Also check to make sure the antenna connector is plugged into the card all the way.
