I would Repair Permissions with Apple's Disk Utility, then run the Mac OS 10.5.8 combo update to bring your OS to the current (and last) version of Leopard. Then I'd Repair Permissions with Apple's Disk Utility again.
If you still don't have the Airport logo on your menu bar, it's time to troubleshoot your WiFi card.
Good advice, applying the combo may help...
1058 Combo Update, 10.5.8...
Also, under the Apple icon at top left>more info>Network... is Airport listed there?
Then, Apple icon at top left>more info>Software>Extensions, is there something like this mentioned?

Thank you both very much. I ran the Repair Permissions and software update says I have the latest version. Still no WiFi showing up. This is the version I have:
Software Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5 (11G63)
Should I still run the combo update?
Airport is not listed under Network and AppleAirPortBrcm4311 is not listed under extensions.
My computer is Mac Pro Early 2008 and I verified that I do have an Airport Card so I'm not imagining that it did work at one point.
Any other suggestions?
Thanks again for helping me.
Oh no, your equipment said 10.5.6, which is what we were going on... no such thing for Lion/10.7.x
On my lowly 2007 iMac it's... AppleAirPortBrcm43224:
I think your WIFI card is shot, but...
Bootup holding CMD+r, or the Option/alt key to boot from the Restore partition & use Disk Utility from there to Repair the Disk, then Repair Permissions.
If that doesn't help Reinstall the OS.
Didn't used to need recommending Windows type fixes.
If I restore the partition, it will delete the entire hard drive, won't it? Same with reinstalling the OS? I'm just trying to figure out if I have to make sure everything is backed up and spend all the time getting it configured again. Maybe just running an ethernet cable across the hallway will be easier at this point, LOL.
Before you get confused further, be advised that you're posting in the wrong forum. This is the Power Mac forum.
Power Macs haven't been made since the summer of 2006 when Apple switched to Intel chips.
You have a Mac Pro, that is an Intel machine, not a "Power Mac".
Just keep that in mind when evaluating the replies you have received so far.
The Mac Pro forum is here:
