    I have a first gen Mac Pro, I would like to add an Airport Extreme Card but don't know what the part number is. Does anyone know the part number that's compatible with the Mac Pro?


    Thanks

    661-4060 is the part number for the AP card if you have the 1st ver Mac Pro. post your serial number and i'll double check to confirm if i got the part number right.

    means that it will void your applecare unless installed by an authorized apple tech. it's a simple install, so if you are out of the applecare warranty, don't sweat it. toughest part is snapping the antennas onto the leads.

    Yes it will. You have to buy the upgraded software from apple. Forget what it cost but think it was 20 bucks.

    Installation instructions

    Hi there - I just found this old post and I am trying to install my card. Does anyone know where I can find installation instructions? The only ones that I found don't seem to be for my machine. I have an early 2006 G5 Tower...?

    Just put it in the PCI slot???

    You didn't buy one of those little mini-PCI express cards for Mac Pros, did you? Those are for Intel macs.

    I just bought a 661-4060 Airport card and the bluetooth adaptor.... looks like the airport just plugs into the pci... how about the bluetooth card? I hope it comes with instructions... because I've had no luck finding them online.

    Edit: I just looked through the owners manual... shows the airport card and bluetooth card locations on the board inside the case... but no instructions. Time to open the case...
    Edit #2: Wow!!! Those are really small! Installation looks like a breeze... if Snow Leopard utility works, all is good!

    Got them installed... don't forget the antenna wires! Those are tiny little wires... a real pain!
