    So I've install Mavericks 10.9 on my Mac Pro 1,1 2006 using the SFOTT "http://oemden.com/" Method. But in order to I had to remove my Airport Card from my mac. After everything got installed I went to install the Kext 1O80211 using Kext Utility 2.5.6 in hopes that it would resolve my issues but that wasn't the case. As a note, my keyboard freezes up when the wireless card is installed . Does anyone have any suggestions or questions?

    Specs

    Model: Mac Pro 1,1
    OS: 10.9.1
    Ram: 5 GB

    Card Type: AirPort Extreme (0x168C, 0x86)
    Firmware Version: Atheros 5424: 2.1.14.9

    Looking at doing the SFOTT install this week, and I also run a wireless setup. Anyone have any advice on this?

    It's all about trial and error trying to get the install up and running. Be sure to remove your wireless card before trying. Otherwise it will not load the installer. Also remove everything via USB, Firewire, and etc. Keep your Keyboard and mouse plugged in (There are moments that the Mouse can cause problems as well). Also keep in touch with me if you need anything. Good luck!

    Tiamo SFOTT Mac Pro 1,1 Wireless

    The above all works perfectly with the Apple wireless upgrade for the Mac Pro 2006.

    I've not had to make any changes and WiFi works beautifully, with or without a WPA password on my Time Capsule.
