    Hi, I have a mac pro a friend gave to me, not sure what year it is but the processor is a 2.26 Quad-Core Intel Xeon, if that helps pinpoint the generation?

    I bought a wifi card for it but I can't find anywhere on the motherboard where to slot it in. By looking at various articles and photos online it just seems like I have a different layout on my motherboard.

    Here's what I have

    And this is the card

    Any ideas?

    you might have a 5,1 MP, so you'll need to pull the CPU tray out to see it.

    Thank you, yes it appears to be the same as the link I posted in my last message. I've found the slot and have inserted the card, but now I have 3 cables and I'm not sure which of these I'm supposed to attach to the card.

    Glad you got it sorted out. The part of the thread I like the most is this: "I have a mac pro a friend gave to me" :D
