  1. Insert the AirPort card, barcode side facing up, through the opening in the PCI card guide and into the connector on the logic board.
  2. Connect the antenna cable to the conector on the end of the AirPort card.

Important: After installing an AirPort card on a new, out-of-the-box Power Mac G4 running Mac OS 9, you must press Option-S when restarting the computer. This ensures the customer will see the Setup Assistant (a movie and setup instructions). If these keys are not pressed down each time a technician restarts the system after an upgrade, the Setup Assistant file will execute, disable itself, and the customer will never see it.
