    Hi,

    I just recently purchased IOGEAR GBU521 as recommended in the link below.

    However, after plugging into the USB port, and using the latest Activation Tool,
    the OS keeps rebooting automatically with a white error screen saying the computer has to restart.

    My OS is currently 10.11.1, and as mentioned in the link it looked like as long as I use the Activation Tool it will work.

    However, if possible I would like to use the Airport card and the adapter as per below.

    Now, because I am not good in tearing computer apart and reinstalling parts, is it something like just plugging in and out PCI-e components? Or do I need to actually do some labor by soldering or removing or something?

    If possible, is there an Youtube video or a step-by-step illustration on how I can install these if it's not hard?

    Thanks in advance.
