    So I had a 2006 Mac Pro before with Wifi/bluetooth problems, and it was solved by switching the wires around.

    On my 2009 Mac Pro, wifi works great but my magic mouse stutters at times.

    On my wifi card, wires 1 and 3 are connected, 2 is free. The bluetooth card is all the way on the right side of the motherboard, and the wire is very short it seems and I cannot reach the other side if I were to switch the wires.

    What gives? Is there a way to unhinge the wires so they reach the other side? Or something else I'm missing in the 2009 mac pro?

    Anyone know how to set those wires free so they reach the other side in a 2009 mac pro?

    The 2009 and 2010 Mac Pro are of a different design, so there is no use messing about with it inside.

    See this thread on how to improve the situation:

    I have a 50cm wire coming out via the PCI-E slots to a antenna lying on the desk.

    I have excellent reception now!
