I have a Minitar 802.11g wireless PCI card that uses the Broadcom chipset and when I install it into my G4 the computer detects it as a airport card and everything works fine. But I just bought a G5 (with 10.3.7 installed)and when I install the Minitar PCI card into the G5 it will not boot, when I press the power button, the white LED lights ups then turns off immediately. Without the PCI card installed everything works fine.

have you tried with a Apple AirPort Card instead?- It's like - he was got - they'd just like. It was like so hush hush. They were so... quiet about it. And then the next thing you know...

Depending on which G5 you have, you either have PCI (like the G4) or PCI-X slots. PCI-X should be compatible, but I think that some PCI cards use higher voltages than PCI-X slots deliver. This could be the problem...
Allthough I'm not totally sure about this, maybe somebody else knows more about it...
