Very happy camper now, but will be even happier if I get my money back from the eBay-guy! Do you happen to have the link to the AliExpress item? Maybe others would like to use that one as well. This is the item I bought: It was also cheaper than the non-functioning eBay card. It was a bit more worn, but as long as it works… I will surely open a dispute with PayPal if the seller does not respond to my question on how we can resolve this.
Thank you Nina for posting the link!
And I hope you get your money back …. Veldig lite stress, her er en guide.

This was by far the most helpful site in deciphering the lilliputian connections to this card. They are so small my old eyes thought they were LEDs at first! My son says that it is working. Now I have all of my WiFi bandwidth back! I can see what you mean that the connectors look like LEDs! Great post, thank you very much, it is working flawlessly for me — took around 20 minutes of careful installation. Followed your instructions and just completed the installation on my tower. Took about 30 minutes and now my wifi is working perfectly! The process went exactly as you said it would, including having patience while connecting wires 1 and 3.
Thanks for the clear and concise instructions! I updated to El Capitan before I went on with the installation process, and it all worked after. Thanks Nina for chiming in! Good to know it works with your El Capitan setup! I have not seen anyone running into this issue …. You could try removing the card, rebooting your computer, shutdown, reinsert the card and reboot and see if it picks up the card.
Edimax AC1200 Dual Band Wi-Fi USB Adapter review: Solve your Mac’s broken Wi-Fi hardware problem
When i do a System Report, and look at Bleutooth, it says something weird: As for your BT, the device seems legit and correct. I found the same info in an old post in the Apple Forum. Does any of this look familiar to you? If yes … then we might be looking at a different problem.
Is the antenna cable still connected for example? Well, as far as I can see, your BT should just work … hmm. YEs, i removed all the OLD stuff, so now i have none… and still, it cant find any new ones. I am a proud owner of a Mac pro which was upgraded from 3. Apart from Macvidcards, is there another vendor where I can purchase one from for a decent price?
Based in the UK by the way. The frequencies for newer WiFi cards are still the same as the older cards. Dito for Bluetooth. Maybe others would like to share what they have been using? Thanks for posting this. It took forever to get the wires hooked up and I lost a screw but I got it going. Thanks again. Thank you so much for taking the time and effort to post a thank you! I have now taken out the fan unit and still no sign of any antenna wires.
Mine was a as well. It might of course be that the wires were not installed or removed. Thanks for responding! Took out some orange and red colored connectors and was able to spot some little wires that turned out to be the antennae—wow those suckers were really hidden! Thanks a million Hans! They were right where you said they would be. However, I do have the BT wire. Would it be behind the logic board then?
I doubt the wires would be underneath the logic board. Jonathan see posts just above yours found the wires there. Alright, thank you! I also have the early edition mac pro. Hopefully you found your wires. Mine were easy because one of the labels was visible. I just used the tweezers to tug it out. For anybody still looking, after you take out the drive bays, just look straight down along where you removed the bays. The gap at the bottom, between the circuit board and the chasis, is where I found mine.
Thank you for posting a token of appreciation! Yes, the comment about using a flat-head screwdriver to push the miniature connectors into place worked a treat. I was able to connect both cables securely. Glad to hear it worked well voor you too. Have fun! Apple has a pretty good record of keeping its drivers. Maybe other users can confirm? I installed my wifi card last night. I am a little annoyed that the card on Amazon showed it as an apple product and the photo showed apple FCC ID as well. Still installed fine and I am happy to be connected to the internet with my Mac Pro early edition.
I could not connect the antennae wires myself. I did screw the card down and then handed it off to my wife. Pro Tip, lay your iphone on the chasis and turn the flashlight on.

The more light the better. She has smaller hands and was able to get the wires to snap on. The antenna wires snap in place rather easily if you push on them with the flat end of a flat-head screwdriver.
Glad it worked well for you as well. First — thank u for taking the time to post this information.
At first I thought it was just using known WiFi access points. Since I no longer have this particular Mac Pro still wish I could get my hands on a cheap model , I cannot test this.

Removing the drive bays is easy, just pull and they slide out …. Insert the WiFi Card under an angle.
