    I just got a "new" G4 Cube. It's running 10.3.2 and 9.2.2. I installed an AirPort card but when I run the AirPort Setup it says I don't have an AirPort card. Neither OS sees it. I've made sure the card is all the way in, zapped PRAM, reset open firmware, made sure all software/firmware is current, repaired permissions, and did a rain dance just for good measure. I swapped the card with the one in my iBook and it worked while the iBook card didn't work in the Cube.

    Is there something else or is this just computer just born to be wired?

    That's strange. I had no problems with installing the airport card in my cube. One thing to look at is the pins on the inside of the card slot... maybe one of them is bent somehow. If not, maybe the wires from the card slot are loose.

    Does the system profiler see the card?

    you might want to check out cubeowner.com. i've also got a cube and they've often been very helpful.
