Ask Max: Can I use an alternate Airport Card in my iMac?

Asked on 12/30/2009:


I have a problem with my Airport Card and want to change it out. Can I use the card MB363Z/A without any problems? My Mac is an iMac 24™ 2.16 Intel Core 2 Duo and the Airport Card I use is bcm 94321 mc.

Best wishes,



Although I have not tried it myself, it should work. When ordering Apple service parts for your system it notes the compatible machines as:

iMac (17-inch Late 2006), iMac (24-inch), Mac Pro, iMac (20-inch Late 2006)

You should be fine, just note that it is a very extensive repair that requires the removal of the front casing and shielding. Also the antenna connectors are fragile so work lightly.

Good luck!
