Ask Max: Airport Extreme in a Quicksilver
Hey, I'm just wondering... can you put an airport extreme card in a Quicksilver 800mhz? I'm thinking of buying one and upgading it with a new processor and hard drive and memory and other stuff, but can you put an airport extreme card in there? Thanks!
The Quicksilver can only accept a standard Airport card internally (Used Airport Card). Original Airport cards use different connections than Airport Extreme cards. You can always use USB wireless connections or other non-Apple solutions, but there are often advantages to using Apple Airport (Extreme) cards. The built-in antenna and automatic driver updates are just a few. Even though Airport is slower than the Airport Extreme, both wireless standards are faster than your internet connection.
