How do I install the airport/bluetooth card in a late 2005 model?

Can I install the AirPort Extreme with Bluetooth 2.0+EDR card in my late 2005 power mac G5 myself? Or do I need to take it to Apple? Unless there is so firmware update or reset that has to be done I should be able to do this myself, I hope!

Is this a good question?

With due respect to Ralph, I just stuck an airport extreme card in mine and hooked up the connector and had no problems.

Hey I'm glad it worked for you. Does that mean the OP can use the CIP pdf?


Sorry, I didn't see your comment till now. Yes the CIP pdf is the way to do it. Really nothing to it.

Here is a link to Apples statement this is not DIY.

And here is a link to a pdf version of the service manual. In it you will find setup procedures but no info on installing the card. Good luck. Ralph

Here is the Apple install for card on an early 2005. Check and see if it looks anything like your computer inside.
