I just received the card (Part# MA252G/A) in the mail but have no instructions on how to install it. The Apple website makes it seem like you have to have a BA in computer science to do it, so I'd like to see what's involved before attemting the install myself. Mind you, I've built computers from scratch so I'm inclined to believe I can so this myself with a little help.


Dual Core 1.3Ghz G5, Mac OS X (10.4.3), 2.5Gb RAM

    Hi Nick -

    Installation instructions that accompany cards are often sketchy as configurations can vary considerably from one system to another. If you take a look at the User's Guide that came with your G5 you should find the instructions you need for installing any type of card. In fact, my G5 User's Guide provides specifics for Airport Extreme installation. Check in the Index under 'Installing' & post back with detail if you have any problems. I think you'll find it rather straightforward.

    Good Luck |:>)

    I doubt that you will find any instructions from Apple. The cards for the new dual core machines are not do it yourself install parts and attempting a self-install could affect your warranty. http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=302721

    Good luck

    Good point, Richard... I didn't notice the DC reference. Although I haven't read the manual on the DC's, I would still expect that to be pointed out as Airport has historically been considered a DIY item.

    I can help you with the instructions, but will have to send you the instruction document via e-mail. I cannot post on this site due to security reasons.
