    Many of those USB WiFi "gizmos" are not very reliable...I've never been able to get on to work properly/reliably. Getting an Airport card for your PowerMac is the way to go!

    Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

    By the way...are you sure that your Netgear wireless USB adapter's model number is "n150"?

    There is an n150 wireless router...but no USB wireless adapter with a model number of n150.

    From what I have seen there are no drivers for OSX, so you are out if luck with that one

    best get an import card or adaptor from mac sales, at least their stuff will work

    or look for airport cards on ebay
