The card works but it only connects to my wireless router. Next screw down the card, using magnetic screwdriver, be careful to have the wires ready, not underneath the card. Anyway…has anyone figuered out what size screws I will be needing to secure the card? I have done the upgrade to my Mac Pro 8-core , but the wifi is slow. Confusion exists as to which wires should be connected to the card once it is seated on the montherboard, is there a way to be sure of which wires to hook-up to the card? I tried putting them in from the left and it finally worked!!!!! It shows I am connected in the network system preferences and I am fully connected and have been for a few days now without any drops in connection.
