OK guys, I'm trying to get an airport card to work on my 2005 Power Mac G5. Here's the relevant info:

Power Mac G5 running on Mac OS X 10.4.11
Machine model: PowerMac7,3 (so this would be "early 2005" I guess?)
Airport card: M8881LL/A AirPort Extreme Card

I installed the card as described from the Apple Support site. It seemed to go in fine and I did hook up the antenna wire to the card and an actual antenna is attached to the back of the computer.

When I fired it back up, the computer still can't find the AirPort card. If I open AirPort Setup Assistant (from utilities) it says Airport hardware was not found.

Any chance there is some kind of driver or other missing software I need? Any suggestions?

Power Mac G5, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
