New Apple Airport Extreme BCM94322MC Wireless WIFI Card For All Mac Pro MB988Z/A

Couple of tricks for installation. First be patient. The printed instructions that come with the card looks like it’s been photocopied multiple times before and is virtually useless. Check out videos on line to help you. There are three wires inside the Mac. I used wires numbered 1 and 3. Plugging in the wires took the most effort. Don’t try to force the wires down into the plugs. Kind of rock them around a bit. Forcing them straight down will only get you painful fingertips.
Having a magnetic tipped screwdriver is a must. That’s the only way to get those tiny screws straight down into the motherboard without dropping them.
* Instructions are garbage, had to look elsewhere for that
* Because of the lack of instructions, takes quite a while to figure it out yourself
* Trying to make the antenna cables from Mac Pro fit the card is complex, specially with hot dog fingers (like I have)
So, my recommendations for anyone looking to get this card are:
1. Handle with care
2. Try connecting the antenna cables BEFORE you insert the card. Make sure they match (cable labeled 1 is bottom of card; card labeled 2 is top of card
3. Once cables are connected to card, gently insert the card and set with a screwdriver (this part was actually simple)
4. Turn on your Mac Pro and go to Preferences -> Network, then turn wifi on, look for your network name and connect
Thankfully I had my wife around with thin hands who helped me on this nightmare. Once I got it working I was happy, the card is cheaper than other non-sense choices, you just need the patience for not throwing through the window and go insane.
PERFORMANCE: I have a gigabit fiber optic connection with maximum speed approaching 900 mbs. Mac Pro is hardwired via coax, so speed is about 400 mbs (the upper-bound of coax capability). I have Linksys Velop mesh wifi with speed 600 mbs,
I purchased the airport this card to get Linksys Velop performance. However, its speed is about 20/10 mbs so I have deactivated it.
The issue with this card was that while it does work in a 2006 Mac Pro and was recognized instantly, I could not get a decent Wifi reception. No matter what combination wiring I tried-- 3,2,1. 1,2,3. 1,3,2... etc. Nothing would get this signal better. Which was odd to me, because while the Mac Pro was a few rooms away from the router, I would place my 2007 MacBook in the same exact spot as the Mac Pro in my house and get a 17Mbps result, whereas my Mac Pro with this card could only muster 0.12Mbps. Almost unusable. I've since switched to a wired ethernet connection for the time being.
While my experience with the card was bad, the only reason I didn't rate the product 1-star is because the seller was understanding and accepted my return and refund with no issues.
It came in a lame envelope with extremely sloppy instructions.

The install went smoothly. This is a very small card so if you have large fingers it might be a problem. I am a big guy and I had very little problem with the install.
The unit itself works flawlessly and the system recognized it right away. Like the original it is 802.11n but that hasn't been a problem yet. If you need more speed 802.11ac is indeed better but is a marginally more difficult install and more expensive as you need an adapter card into which the 802.11ac card from an iMac fits. An advantage is it is a combo card so you get Bluetooth 4.
Also you have to bring the bluetooth antenna over from the existing bluetooth card, to the other side of the board and bring the USB cable over from the existing Bluetooth card as well. This is all well documented on Youtube.
Works well, no issues
