: G4 (mirrored) not recognizing Wireless PCI card

Feb 16th, 2008, 10:47 AM
Hey I just bought a Sonnet Aria Extreme card, after much research naming it as a compatible card for mac. The computer doesn't seem to think it's there cause it doesn't show in the System Profiler, nor does the Airport setup utility see it. Anybody?

Need your OS.

You might want to zap the PRAM to let the machine know it's there.

OS is 10.3.9

Pram Zapped, to no avail... I even swore at it a few times.

Try a different PCI slot.

10.3.9 is sooooooo erratic.
Time to upgrade OS????

Try a different PCI slot.

Yes, try that or you could also try reseating the card and making sure it is inside properly.

Thanks folks, I am now one step closer to networking two computers wirelessly, I upgraded the os to Tiger and it saw the card immediately. Now I just can't seem to get the card to see a wireless network. Even after cussing at it some more.
