Want to install Airport card in a 2005 eMac Model 1002. How?

My 2005 G4 is a great storage device, but I am faced with burning a disc every time I want to get something to my iMac or MacBook. I have the Airport Extreme card, but don't know where it plugs in.

I have the hood off and the underside plate away from the memory boards and the CD player.

Can anyone guide me through the next step?


Excellent guide, and if I had been looking, I would have found your directions. Really simple, and well done.

Thanks a bunch.

This isn't exactly the answer you asked for but you don't have to burn anything. Your machine has a firewire port. Hook it up to your newer macs via a firewire cable and boot the eMac holding down the "T" key. Your hard drive icon will show up on the other machine and you can drag and drop.

But here's the guide I wrote on how to do it: eMac AirPort Card Replacement

Nice guide Richard +


somebody just completed it, I think, for the first time. I don't get a lot of action on my eMac guides ;-)
