    I have just recieved my mac, and taken the bottom of to see what kind of airport card i need. I already have an extreme card but some people dont think it will work. I have sloted it in, and there is a conenction, but do not want to turn it on if it is wrong. I have heard i can check the serial number on my imac, and that will tell me what card i should use. Does anyone know where i can find this databasE?

    If its a recent Mac, its an Extreme card. But if its older, then its a normal Airport card. Apple's support pages might help.

    If the card fit, it's the right card. The Airport card has a different form facor and connector from the Airport Extreme card.
