    Hi To All,

    Yesterday, I purchased a new MacPro at the Apple Store, but neglected to have the install the Airport Extreme Card. Two Questions:

    1. Is this card the best way to access the internet for the MacPro?

    2. If I just buy the card at the Apple Store, is the installation difficult?

    Thanks for the assistance.

    1. If you have access to an Ethernet connection, use that. It will be faster and more reliable.
    2. No, it's very easy. Just shove a card into a slot and you're good to go.

    It is a little more complicated than just shoving it in a slot. The airport extreme card isn't a PCI card. It has a specific home on the logic board. If you aren't comfortable working inside a computer, you may not want to tackle this one yourself. As noted, however, a wired ethernet connection would be preferable, especially for the Mac Pro since you likely won't be moving it around very much.

    if u want to go wireless the apple store sells it and the installation is included in the price, which i think is around 49$
