    Hi all,

    I managed to take out the logic board on my iMac G5 first generation (changing capacitors), but there is a small wire near the power button that i missed to notice where it goes.

    (picture is included)

    So, does anyone know were it is attached? it is just sticking there - i think it is a ground wire.. but where on motherboard underneath does it go?

    thanks for any hints,

    That looks like an Airport Antenna. There should be two of them to the airport card.
