    So when I got my G5 quad core, it was missing both the WiFi/Bluetooth combo card, and the runway card that it is mounted on. Whilst the combo cards are fairly common here in the UK, the runway cards are non existent, so does anyone know of a PCI Express WiFi card that will work with AirPort? I know there are several USB dongles that will work, but I'm really not a fan of them, partly due to the limited number of USB ports present on the G5. Currently running OS X 10.5.8 Leopard.

    Cheers

    I use a BCM94321MC mini pcie from a Macbook Pro. I have it in a mini pcie to pci wifi sled. Works natively as an airport card on Leopard.

    Good call, that's what I think I'll do. I've ordered a BCM94321MC and mini PCIe to PCIe adapted, just Horta wait for them to arrive now.
