Make sure to insert the AirPort Card with the label facing down, away from you.

Does the antennae cable not plug into the card - Your illustration shows a large cable simply taped on top of the card and, as far as I can see, a smaller thinner cable that appears to be going to the card. I have the bigger cable in my iMac but it dues not appear to fit into the card - Do Inhave the wrong card or something?
