    Seems like they use ralink chipsets

    USB Adapter 802.11b/g WUSB54G Wireless-G Linksys Ralink RT2500 chipset, iPC OSx86 has an RT2500 USB package that installs the proper driver and Ralink's Wireless Utility.
    Works only with WUSB54G ver. 4
    not really sure about your, you can always try with this

    Ralink Technology: Macintosh

    If any of that work, then you will need to buy a new one, there some for $10 that work OTB and they even have airport support

    AMD Phenom™ 9500 Quad-Core Processor
    Chipset NVIDIA nForce 430
    3GB RAM
    Nvidia 8500 GT

    All i did for custom install was The NVIDIA nforce patch and essential osx items. Then later i installed the 8500gt drivers inside OSX

    Try editing this:
    /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist
    look for this line
    <key>Kernel Flags</key>
    <string>cpus=1</string>
    If cpus=1 is there, there you need to remove it, save and reboot
