Adding Airport Extreme to Rev A G5 PowerMac

I'd like to add an airport card to my Rev A G5 PowerMac so I can print to an Airport Express.

It looks like the antenna is already installed At least, what looks like an Airport antenna cable is hanging there in the memory section of the computer. Is this correct? I thought adding Bluetooth or Airport after the fact meant finding an antenna... Maybe just for Bluetooth? Can I add Airport simply by buying an Airport Extreme card and plugging it in?

How much does the Airport Extreme card stick up? Is it much taller than the memory sticks? I've got two HDs in a G5Bracket in the memory area of my G5. Can I still fit an Airport card to it?





Don't ask who the bell's for, dude. It's you.

Wire is there, you plug the T antenna in the back, it should have come in the box. If not, spend your money on a good aftermarket antenna.

Mine works fine with 3 drives in the CPU bay.

BT wire to the back port is already there, the external antenna for the BT looks like a stub, mine was in the box.
