    I am sorry if this has been posted earlier. I bought a used 2006 Mac Pro yesterday which didn't came with wireless card. So I started looking for one and found this one on ebay:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=260639149033&ssPageName=ADME:X:RTQ:US:1123

    Although it says a Macbook pro but seller has mentioned that it is compatible with 2006 Mac Pro as well. When I contacted him he says as long as the computer has mini pci express slot it will work.

    Can anyone suggest if this is the card I can go for?

    I appreciate any help.

    I actually bought that exact card a few weeks ago (from the same ebay seller) for my 2006 Mac Pro, and it does work. Only thing is, it does not come with mounting screws; I had to hunt down some tiny screws for that. I forget what kind of screws it needs, it's something like a 1-64, 1-72, or an M1.6. The antenna wires are kind of a pain to install, small hands/fingers are good.
