10.4: Resolve Bluetooth range problem on Mac Pros Desktop Macs
My new Mac Pro had a problem with Bluetooth: the reception between the Mac Pro and my wireless Mighty Mouse was terrible. The mouse worked fine at about two feet from the Mac Pro, but at three feet, it skipped and stuttered.

I contacted AppleCare, and they were going to send a technician to change the Bluetooth module. It turns out, in the meantime, that I found this thread on Apple's discussion boards talking about this problem, and offering a solution.

In short, there are a few wires coming from the motherboard to the Bluetooth and AirPort modules, and two of them are mislabeled. I've written up the problem and solution in this article I hope this helps others who have problems with the Mac Pro and Bluetooth, and I hope that Apple notices what the real cause of this problem is.

I too have seen this. My only guess are the the four wires are for Airport b, g and Bluetooth 1.0, 2.0. This is only a guess on my part.
