I am looking for WiFi card recommendations, as the internal wifi is not working very well on my newly acquired machine.
Your G5 is a dual processor 2,0 GHz "AGP" PowerMac. Your internal AirPort Extreme A1027 card needs to be hooked up to an antenna. The wire that it's connected to leads to an antenna connector in the back. You need to plug in an external antenna for the WiFi to work properly as the aluminium case is pretty much shielding the signal.
That said, the original antenna is quite hard to find and pricey. But you can acquire any external antenna with an MCX connector (just make sure you get the correct "gender") and you're good to go.
