    The bluetooth cable on my 2 year old 2.66 ghz MP is not long enough to reach the connection on the motherboard. I have the airport card installed and working fine. I guess if I ever want the factory internal Bluetooth installed I'm supposed to take my tower into a genius bar and let them deal with it, but I typically like installing myself because of the inconvenience of transporting. Has anyone else come across this issue?

    Oddly, don't use the cable labeled BT... Do a search on "bluetooth" in this forum and you will find that Apple has mislabeled these wires.

    After reading these forums I found that the wire labeled "1" should go to the bluetooth card.

    If you have an airport card:
    The wire labeled "2" to the top airport card attachment
    The wire labeled "3" to the bottom airport attachment

    Here is one thread I found to be helpful:

    By the way - I have a bluetooth card that used the "BT" wire and the connection between my MP and wireless mouse/keyboard was awful. I swapped to wire 1 and bingo. I can use my mouse and keyboard from across the room.

    I've since installed an airport card with wired 2 and 3 and it has been rock solid.
