    Hey guys.
    I just installed a original Airport Extreme Card in to my Mac Pro 1.1 runnig OS X 10.10.
    The installation it self wasn´t too hard but the download speed is so slow.
    With the WiFi Stick I used before, I was able to get around 50MB/s in speedcheck. Now only 3MB/s wich is very slow.
    What is the problem?
    I uninstalled the old wifi stick drivers already.
    Maybe someone can help me-

    Thanks:apple:

    Did you connect the antenas?

    If you hold "option" when you click on WiFi icon it shows connection speed.

    The antennas are connected. It shows:
    IP Adress: 192.something :D
    Router: 192. something
    Internet: Unreachable (its german so I translate)
    Security: Personal WPA2
    BSSID: 44 something
    Channel: 6
    RSSI: -83dBm
    Tx Rate: 7mbits
    PHY-Mode: 802.11n


    There was an issue that I couldn´t set up an Internet connection when I started the mac with the airport card for the first time, but after a restart it connected.
