Similar instructions, with graphics, are included with the AirPort
1. Shut down the computer (choose Shut Down from the Special menu) and unplug all cables except the power cord.

to discharge static electricity. Avoid walking around until you have
finished installing the card. Unplug the power cord then lift the latch
on the side of the computer.
3. Gently lower the side panel onto a clean, flat surface. Lower it onto a soft cloth to avoid scratching the case.
4. Connect the antenna cable to the connector on the end of the
AirPort card. The cable is usually stowed on the side of the PCI card
5. Remove the metal clip and pull the AirPort card from the
adapter card, shown below. The adapter card and clip are not used with
your Power Mac G4.

opening in the PCI card guide, and into the connector on the main logic
board as shown below.
7. Raise the side panel and press it against the case until it snaps into place.
Instructions for using the AirPort software are in Mac Help, available in the Help menu.
