g5 pci card issues
Mar 18, 2009

Hello,
just received a Sonnet aria n wireless pci card.
Followed installation instructions carefully. I also swapped slots

with pci usb card (NEC) known to be working (and works after swap so I am installing

correctly). Also removed usb card completely and restarted:- no difference. Neither system profiler nor wirelessutilitycardbus that is supplied with the product is recognising the card.
Tried to install a belkin pci airport card from a local apple

reseller recently and it also was not recognised (since returned). Starting to think its my machine, but don't know why usb pci card works perfectly and 2 pci airport cards not recognised? I have tried under leopard but to no avail. Neither the reseller nor Sonnet could help me out.

Any light you could shine on this
would be gratefully appreciated.

Regards

Pat

sys info: dual 1.8 Ghz power pc G5 running 10.4.11
airport utility Version 5.4.1 (541.9),
