@gigzbyte, does your card listed in system profiler?


No, it doesn't appeared there.

hello,

here is another strange thing. After I have bricked my Gigabyte Clone of AR5BXB6 I have baught a brand new original AR5BxB6 over e-bay, an original Airport-Card. I have replaced the gigabyte with the new one. startet Windows. All work perfect card was recognized as AR5BxB6 Atheros AR5006EXS. Wonderful!
Now I have reinstalled the OSX 10.5.6 with the Samsung NC10 Distro. After that there is no WIfI in OSX. sys.log shows me message "bla-bla-bla/Airport/ loaded unsuccessfully". grrrrrrrrrr..... I have tried to load the kext manually. but no luck. Can anybody told me where is the problem? all other Hardware in my Fujitsu Siemens Esprimo Mobile U9200 works perfekt... but without WLAN this is {censored} ;)

Hi all! As of today, I have nice working WiFi. My problem was in PCI/PCI-Ex - after replacing AppleACPIPCI.kext it appears in SysProfiler, I can do all things with my WifI.

I'm having a little problem with my card (168c:001c:1a32:0100):

0c:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Atheros Communications Inc. AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI Express Adapter [168c:001c] (rev 01)
Subsystem: Device [1a32:0100]

Above the original lspci output, as you can see my subdev_id is 0100, which is found 4 times in my eeprom dump. If I change all 4 to 004e my card doesn't work anymore. There are simply too many combinations to try here. Can anyone please give me some guidance which ones I need to change? Below is my original dump.

hey dutchcow,

I can only see two points where You have to change the subsystem ID. Please read my posts above to be aware, making the same nonsense like me.
I think you have wrote to the wrong registers. If You can find your card in lspci anyway You can try to flash back the original values. My card is not anymore showing there! So I can't repair them. My card is bricked!. After this odyssey I have bought an original Apple Airport Card. but it will only function perfect under Windows :( May be I have the same problem like gigzbyte with ACPIPCI kext. I will try this out next time.
If anybody has an Idea how to reanimate my bricked Gigabyte card then please wrote here or to me :) .

thx

Hi all, I've got a NC10, i've done exactly the phases on the 1 post, but it doesn't function. Now i have to restore my atheros, but on the command ath_info -d f0100000
said:
sleep_ctl reg ffffffff   reset_ctl reg ffffffff
 waking up the chip
 removing resets
 MAC revision 0xffff is not supported!

i can't access to the eeprom. Any ideas ? i've seen a ath_eeprom-dump.bin: is that the old eeprom? can copy that on the actual eeprom?
HELP! :)
thnx

is this method only for the above mentioned card? is it possible to apply it to other similar cards? e.g. the AR9285 and the AR9280. the latter is natively supported and the former is not. anyone tried this method for other cards?

@serkan. I think this is not for the ath 9k cards. maybe that the method can do this, but you need the correct values and adresses for this card to function correct. I have also read that this card should natively run.

@all I have another strange effect I have an FuSi Esprimo Mobile U9200. the original 5007eg will not go. no way!
I have bought an Gigabyte Card compatible with the AR5BxB6 but i can't activate them. ( Windows no probs!) I think now this card must go without modification. but i have tryed to patch them to orig. Mac ID and bricked them.. dammned...
Now I have baught an orig. Airport Card AR5BxB6 ( This is the only Card that will be mechanical fit in the case!!! only single sided PCIe Cards will fit in the slot!!!) but with installation iPC or iDeneb or Yas or ... it don't work ( bla bla bla loaded unsuccesfully, please read my older posts here.) The same error with the GIGABYTE Card. This is why I think the GIGABYTE Card must work!

Here it comes. for some days I have tried to install Snow Leopard ( without success... this is'nt the point) the installer has changed chameleon to V2 RC2 and tadaaaaaaa now the card works perfect!!

How can it be? I have changed back to older Chameleon but the Card works... after 4 days. im must change back to Win for something. after change back to OSX The Card don't work. ( what the f***)
tried all I know also with setpci subordinate... or command=0x43... all the {censored} has no effect! the Card don't work. ( but perfect in Win!!!)
After this I have tried to change Chameleon to RC2 from the snow installer.... and ???????????????
THE CARD WORKS!!!!

can anyone tell me what is the new chameleon do with my PCIe Bus that this will be fine?????

PS I have seen another strange effect with new chameleon ( This is why I have moved back to older)
the RC2 has made modifications in my BIOS Setup!!! it activates the BIOS Boot Image and I think anythink else!!! but don't know what it does with my BIOS! Any Ideas?

PPS: @0Pipe may be Your problem will nearly the same as mine. You can try the setpci command like written in the man page from ath_info without that ath_info can't access the card! this must be done after reset or after Power off! This is Board specific...

Attention: There is a more or less high possibility to brick your card, in case you don't know what you are doing.

Identifying the device: It doesn't mean your card will not be bricked "following another guy's guide" or "using his IDs", although you two have the "same card"... Most people think tools like lspci provide sufficient information, in order to judge whether your card is the same as another guy's card or whether it's an "a/b/g" or "b/g-only" card. An AR5006EG for instance. These cards aren't all the same since their chipsets and subchipsets differ.

Possible scenarios are: You don't have the EXACT same card as the guy you got information form (such as ID's and Memory and byte locations => you ignore the previous fact and apply the foreign settings on your card's EEPROM => usually leads to grief , sorrow and suicide

The idea: Replacing the Subsys IDs (Subvendor and Subdevice ID) of your device (e.g. Hp, Gigabyte or "Unknown") with Apple's IDs

Profits: You will end up with a fully functional Apple Airport Extreme Card. No more disconnects and no CRC Errors in your files. Use Apple's kexts nomore modifications. Just fully native a.k.a. Vanilla.

First Step: Install Ubuntu (Hardy Heron) and Subversion

Install this OS. Do not use Live CDs for this guide if you aren't familiar with Linux.
If you need help with installing it without screwing up your Partition Table and Bootloader check this post (GUID).

When you are in the OS ensure you are connected to the Internet and launch the terminal.
Type following: (Enter your password if you have one.)

sudo -s
apt-get install subversion

Second Step: Install madwifi tools in Ubuntu

http://www.stchman.com created a wonderful guide for this. Even a script to get things easier for you. Here are the most important excerpts offering 2 ways to install the madwifi tools

A) Easy Way

Get the script created by stchman (attached to this post), copy it to your home directory and run it by typing:
chmod 755 ~/madwifi.sh
sudo ~/madwifi.sh

:P Not-so-easy Way

Get the source here.

Get what is needed to compile the source:

sudo apt-get -y install build-essential bin86
Once that is done you will need to do the following:

Copy the .tar.gz to the /usr/src/ folder. This command assumes you downloaded the archive to your home folder. replace ~ if your downloaded to a different location.

sudo cp ~/madwifi-0.9.3.2.tar.gz /usr/src/
Change to the /usr/src folder.
cd /usr/src
Decompress the tarball.
sudo tar -xzf madwifi-0.9.3.2.tar.gz
Install the sharutils from the package manager.
sudo apt-get -y install sharutils
Change to the folder that the tarball extracted to.
cd /usr/src/madwifi-0.9.3.2
Make the drivers (during this time the procedure may ask you to remove the older drivers, let it do so)
sudo make clean
sudo make
sudo make install


Third Step: Install ath_info

To get it type:
svn co http://svn.madwifi.org/ath_info/trunk ath_info

Change to the directory:
cd ath_info/

And install it:
make
make all

Fourth Step: Get essential Information with lspci and ath_info

Type following in your terminal and look for your Atheros named device in the list:
sudo lspci -vvnn

Here are my definitions which are going to be used until the end of the post
  • <class_id>: should be 0200 by default, meaning Ethernet Controller
  • <vendor_id>: is the first ID in brackets after the name of your device. Should be 168c for Atheros cards (won't be changed)
  • <device_id>: is the ID right after the colon . Should be 001c for AR5006EG-series (won't be changed)
  • <subven_id>: is the first ID on the second line of the device, starting with Subsystem:..
  • <subdev_id>: the second ID on the same line, the one after the colon
  • <memory_loc>: the value in the 7th line which begins with Region 0:.. (8-digit)
Check if your card is b/g or a/b/g by typing following with the correct memory location
ath_info -d 0x<memory_loc>

You can find the information somewhere at the beginning of the output. It is supposed to look like this:

Posted Image

As you can see, mine is b/g only. This is important to know since Apple doesn't use only one Subdevice ID. So their b/g and a/b/g IDs differ and you will have to replace your old Subdevice ID by the respective one from Apple, which are:
  • 0086 for a/b/g cards
  • 004e for b/g cards
Now scroll down to until you see the EEPROM dump. Copy-Paste it somewhere, so you can restore it easily if you mess up. It's supposed to look like this:

Posted Image

Of course yours will look different. So use Ctrl+F or anything to look for your
  • <class_id>
  • <subdev_id> (2x)
  • <subven_id> (2x)
You are supposed to end up with 5 locations of the IDs. Subdev and Subven ID will each show up twice, so each has 2 different locations. I prepared a legend, so you should easily find out the locations. Look where you found your IDs and write down each location.

Posted Image

So write down your
  • <class_id_loc>: location of your <class_id>
  • <1st_subdev_loc>: a <subdev_id> location
  • <2nd_subdev_loc>: the other <subdev_id> location
  • <1st_subven_loc>: a <subven_id> location
  • <2nd_subven_loc>: the other <subven_id> location
each is 4-digit.

Fifth Step: Replacing the Subsystem IDs

Class ID

Replace your old Class ID, 200 which stands for Ethernet Controller with the new 280 which stands for Network Controller
ath_info -g 3:0 -w 0x<memory_loc> <class_id_loc> 280

Subvendor ID

Replace the old Subvendor ID with the one from Apple, which is 106b
ath_info -g 3:0 -w 0x<memory_loc> <1st_subven_loc> 106b
ath_info -g 3:0 -w 0x<memory_loc> <2nd_subven_loc> 106b

Subdevice ID

Replace the old Subdevice ID with
  • 004e if you have an "b/g" card
  • or 0086 if you have an "a/b/g" card
ath_info -g 3:0 -w 0x<memory_loc> <1st_subdev_loc> <004e or 0086>
ath_info -g 3:0 -w 0x<memory_loc> <2nd_subdev_loc> <004e or 0086>

Confirm all operations with 'y' as it will ask you. I used the value 3 for all operations. If it doesnt work for you feel free to try out the digits from 0 to 5.

Check your new EEPROM dump and verify the new data
ath_info -d 0x<memory_loc>

If everything went flawlessly lspci is to show your card as
  • Network controller [0280]: Atheros Communications, Inc. AR5006EG ...................... [168c:001c] (rev 01)
  • Subsystem: Apple Computer Inc. Device [106b:<004e or 0086>]
At least that's what OS X Terminal shows you, when you are back on OS X. The Ubuntu lspci output gives some less cosmeticly results, like Apple Inc Unknown etc..


So pls report back about the results.

-----

You will have to tweak your windows drivers for your card a little to get it working there. It's only replacing some IDs in the .ini file. I will upload my .ini file in future and maybe add the stuff for abg cards too. Mine is recognized as AR5007EG in Vista, tho works flawlessly.

Another issue may be your router. Mine doesn't support WPA anymore with the vanilla kexts. This is because my router only supports WPA TKIP and Leopard seems to have issues with TKIP-only routers. So if you have an old router as me, you will have to use WEP or use modded Tiger kexts or get a not-so-outdated router with WPA-AES too.

Oh yeah I almost forgot... HP-Bios users ... good luck

I Tried, and the card were rebranded successfully, but now I get a kernel panic at boot complaining about com.apple.AirPortbrcm43xx something.
Don't know why the card is detected as broadcom..
But I noticed that the Info.plist in brcm43xx containing 106b,e4 which I find pretty irritating. (Because my card is a AR5006EG rebranded with these instructions to exactly that 106b,e4)

I'll update when I get this to work. Though I'm gonna change distro and reinstall. (Because even with a fresh install I can't boot with -s or -x) (But then i have to reinstall ubuntu again aswell :D )

Any pointers / tips would be highly apperciated :)

Which distros would you guys recommend?
(Running iPC 10.5.6 at the moment)

Please, does anyone have any info on how to recover bricked cards after unsucessfull mod?
My 5007 from Acer 5610z just died after i used the killswitch, and never turned on again!
it isnt listed in windows, nor linux (ubuntu 9,1) nor mac os... its juts like the device were not connected???

There is somehow to force activate it so i could try to reedit it??

You need ROM programming hardware to recover your bricked card. You also need the original copy of the eeprom to enable you to restore your card to working condition. You can find/ask ROM programming tools at DIY or electronic store.

Hi all! As of today, I have nice working WiFi. My problem was in PCI/PCI-Ex - after replacing AppleACPIPCI.kext it appears in SysProfiler, I can do all things with my WifI.

need more details about how to modify the AppleACPIPCI.kext
thx a lot

Hello, I too have an Atheros-based wireless which works in osx but after a reboot stops working(kismac doesn't find any networks while scanning anymore). So, I decided to take the plunge and rebrand my card. My card is an AR5007EG, more specifically AR5BXB63. However, as soon as I began this, I've stumbled across some problems. These would be: My card is 802.11 G ONLY so I'm stuck here

Hello, I too have an Atheros-based wireless which works in osx but after a reboot stops working(kismac doesn't find any networks while scanning anymore). So, I decided to take the plunge and rebrand my card. My card is an AR5007EG, more specifically AR5BXB63. However, as soon as I began this, I've stumbled across some problems. These would be: My card is 802.11 G ONLY so I'm stuck here

Hi guys, I have a question, i know i'm boring you guys, but, I really need some help!
I got an Atheros 5007 card, it works, but I need to use kismac, and reboot reboot, and reboot to make it work.
Could this tutorial make it work in OS X without using the KisMac or needing to reboot to make it work?

Thanks
