Airport card not working

Hi. I just ordered a airport card for my power mac G4 and I have no clue as how to get it working... I have worked on several other macs, and the airport cards on them are much smaller but work. Can someone help me figure this out?

Not sure what happened to your original question, but my guess is from the stuff you asked last time, it's either a bad airport card or the connector on the mother board is bad. Do you have another card you can try?

Is there a way to check the connection

I'm not really sure the best way to test the connection. Maybe somewhere there's a pinout and you can check continuity? If your card doesn't show up in System Profiler, it's gotta be either the card or the slot itself.
