Removing/deleting the Wi-fi card?
I hate wi-fi radiation. I want to remove, delete and kill the wi-fi card, following your guide. Despite my switching if off in software, the Mac Pro or MAvericks has re-activated Wi-fi 3 times since I got the new Mac Pro (yesterday). So, I am going to kill it in hardware. I now know where to find the wi-fi card ...
Do you think I may have any problems with hardware start-up checks or similar after putting it back together, but with the wi-fi card expunged from the machine?

Thanks for the comments:
There are currently more than 34 published academic studies showing that wi-fi destroys or damages genomes / DNA. If you have an ethernet connection, why would you want to radiate your brain and body? Just google: "wi-fi destroys DNA" if interested. Fortunately, Apple has made it quite easy to remove.
For those following the thread ... I purchased a T5 torx screwdriver which is needed for the removal. The process is quite simple:
1. Take off the outer lid of the Mac Pro
2. Remove the round plastic black hat (with a diameter about 120mm) on the top: use a plastic spludgee (or pocket knife if more daring), and shove it up between the Mac Pro body and the black hat, ... the hat is just stuck on with some pressure glue, so work your way around levering it off, and eventually the whole cap just pops off. [ It sticks back on again when you press it down.]
3. Then follow the photos on the site here to remove the Airport card. There are 8 Torx T5 screws to remove, as well as 4 antennae connectors to unplug ... and you are done ... then lift up the card, --> the Airport card is sitting on the underside. Wiggle out the Airport card from its connector on the underside. All done.
Put back together ... Start up Mac and everything works fine ... The Finder Menubar status icons now show:
x -> Bluetooth Not available
x -> Wifi: No hardware installed.
How good is that! Wonderful and delighted!!
