Rating: 5/5 Wifi Upgrade for Mac Pro 3,1 under Sierra January 8, 2017 I upgraded a Mac Pro 3,1 to Sierra. After the upgrade, the Wifi no longer worked, as expected. Installation was made easier by the fact that this Mac Pro 3,1 already had a WiFi card installed, so knowing which antenna cables to attach and where to attach them was easy. The magnetic screwdriver in the DIY kit was essential. After installation, Wifi worked perfectly.

Rating: 4/5 Works fine under Sierra December 2, 2016 The Airport Extreme card of my early 2009 MacPro (upgraded 5.1) wasn't supported under Sierra. This new card was not really difficult to install since the processor is mounted on a drawer that can be easily removed, giving access to the wifi card. The included magnetized Philips screwdriver helped me remove the 2 little screws and I used the small plastic tool to detach the antennas. Happy to be able again to connect wirelessly to the Internet.

Rating: 5/5 Added Wifi to a Mac Pro. June 7, 2016 A friend of mine gave me a Mac Pro (early 2008) that I could use at home. The only problem for me was that it didn't have Wifi, and my "home office" is on the opposite corner of my house from where my cable modem is.

I bought this Wifi card for it. Other reviews indicated that it might be a hassle to install, so I had it installed by a computer technician who has experience with Macs. (FWIW, he told me that it's actually pretty easy to install, if you know what parts need to be moved out-of-the-way). He had it installed in maybe 15 minutes, I bought it home, and so far it has been working fine. I'm glad I won't have to run an ethernet cable across the entire length of my house!

I would recommend this item to a friend!

Rating: 5/5 Card works perfectly and tools came in handy! January 4, 2015 Hi, I ordered this with a little trepidation as this is a used card and I read that the self-install would be a little hairy…which it was…However, with patience, a little foul language, and some online guidance, I was able to get this baby installed in about an hour. I was glad to have the small screwdriver that came in the tool set to help me with the teeny tiny screws to seat the card in the motherboard. I felt like a champ when I got my old machine up and running w/WiFi immediately after the install, and it's been working reliably now for over an month. Thanks OWC for having this kit available! I wish it came with instructions or an Installer Elf with small hands, but if I got through it, you can too! Recommended!

Rating: 4/5 Works decent & hard to install November 28, 2014 Alright so let me cut straight to performance and the main reason for the 4 stars instead of 5. The card does give me wifi on my mac pro, but it is a much weaker signal then my MBP in the same location. I actually had to re-arrange my office to get the pro closer to the signal.

Now, the important part - the install:

Sure the space is small but the worst part was finding the 3 antenna wires and then trying to figure out what went where. I had to try three different configurations before having success and getting the wires connected is the hardest part. I ended up with 1 going to bluetooth and then 3 connected closest to the bluetooth on the card, followed by 2.

The wires: mine were not visible at all. i had to flip my pro upside down and squeeze my pinky finger behind the motherboard and luckily I was just able to touch and pry one of the wires down. The other two were connected to it so they came easy afterwards.

I found the small plastic piece that came with the install kit crucial to getting the wires snapped on. Also the magnetic screwdriver was an absolute MUST HAVE.

if your doing the install I bid you good luck. Took me about 75 minutes to complete.

Rating: 5/5 Works perfectly August 29, 2014 Works perfectly in my 2.66 GHz Quad-Core Mac Pro. I didn't think I would need the install kit, but it turned out to be pretty necessary and way easier to install WITH it. Very happy with this purchase.
