    When I first ordered my late 2007 mac pro, I didn't need an AirPort card because my router was set up right on my desk. However, I just moved into a new house and my current internet set up doesn't allow me to have my router next to my pro. So now I want to add and AirPort card.
    I'm thinking of purchasing from here:

    What I want to know is:

    1. Will this work on my late 2007, 2.66ghz quadcore Mac Pro?

    2. How difficult is it to install?

    3. Can I even install it myself or will it have to require taking it to the Apple Store?

    Personally I think I would be influenced by the very first line of that ad:
    "NOTE: This product is NOT user installable and should only be installed by an Apple authorized service center. " There must be a reason for them saying that, as all previous AP cards had everything up to user installation guides on Apple as user-installable parts.

    Hopefully you can find the thread the other poster mentioned and it can clarify it further. Good luck!
