Hi all,

In the process of attempting to add additional RAM to my ibook 14" superdrive, I have removed the airport card to get at the ram shield. The first time I put the wireless card back in after I took out the RAM (which turned out to be non-functional), it didn't work. Then when I put it back in, it did work. NOw (!), after a third time of having to put the airport card back in, it wont recognise it on my OS at all! Has anybody else had such a problem and does anybody know how I can correct it!? The little brace which holds the card in place has become slightly bent in the process, but I'm sure if I levelled it out with a pair of long nose pliers, that would be fine.
ANy help appreciated, thanks, tom.

In your head.
Carfuly remove the antenna plug.
Remove the airport Ex card.
Reseat it with slow gentel pressure.
Re attach the antenna plug.

That reads like sound advice, I am sure you thought of this.
