Can everyone who got it to work list their card? Hoping it works with a Intel 2200B/G also

great...downloading now. If there's any way that you could post that modified version of the file we need lagnat, that would be much appreciated. I'll always be worried i'm missing some code or something

I've said quite a few times it won't work with anything but the BROADCOM chipset that the Airport and other cards have. No chance in hell of Intel stuff working, sorry.

cyrana, I've got the broadcom chipset on my Dell, and I really would like to get wireless working. Is there any way you could post the finished file we need to update our drivers? I would really appreciate it if you've got it handy. Thanks in advance!

If someone can show me some good anonymous place to put the compiled file I could do it I guess. I'm just overly paranoid until things are out of beta...I don't know if this sort of stuff is a grey area or what.

Maxxus has been using the following sites to host his patches. So far so good. Can you get the binary uploaded to one of these places.

This is a huge step! Thanks to you and everyone else on this site for all your efforts. I can't wait to use this solution since I have a Dell Latitude D600.

The file is a bzip2, so just open a terminal to the file and type 'AppleAirPort2.bz2'. You'll need to follow the end of his instructions, where he has you copy the file into your /System/Library/Extensions/...whatever. Probably need to do the chmod and all that as well.

EDIT - Here is an example, do this from the directory/folder that you bunzipped the file to:
Something like this (not in MacOS now to actually try, going from memory):
$ sudo chown -R root:wheel ./AppleAirPort2
$ sudo cp -r ./AppleAirPort2 System/Library/Extensions/AppleAirPort2.kext/Contents/MacOS/

Then test it with sudo kextload -t /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAirport2.kext

If you have some knowledge of MacOS and the Shell it shouldn't be too hard. :P

Well everything was good up until I tried to the last command to test it and then I got this error.


tiger-x86:~/work root# sudo kextload -t /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAirport2.kext
can't add kernel extension /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAirport2.kext (validation error) (run kextload on this kext with -t for diagnostic output)
kernel extension /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAirport2.kext has problems:
Validation failures
{
"Executable file doesn't contain kernel extension code" = true
}


I am not familiar with MacOS at all. Matter as a fact I have had this installed for about 2 weeks and this is the first time I have ever used MacOS. Any help would be appreciated.

Works with linksys wmp54gs, but it doesn't seem to connect.
Connects without any encryption, this might be because i have a terrible wireless signal. Anyways it works to some extent atleast :lol:

cyrana, you mentioned before that you could get the kext to load successfully but could not initialize your card to start. I'm running into the same peculiar problem. Did you find a solution to this? I'm running a dell latitude D610. I know that it's supposed to work on this system. Wireless is all i need now to make this my permanent OS!! Let me know where you're at on it.

after running the kext the card must be configured, reboot once to get the port in network connections, then run the airpot assistant, it will fail, but it will leave the card in a working state. then use internet connect to join an AP. and tada

My HP NC6000 has some O2Micro Cardbus controller, which isn't supported in OS X or Darwin... I get an NC8230 next week which has a TI chipset.

The only ones that are supported are some TI (Texas Instruments) PCMCIA/Cardbus chips.

I have a Dell 8600 with a mini-pci BroadCom 1450 and it works flawlessly.

thanks qapf, but after loading the kext and rebooting, I don't get anything coming up if I go to network connections at all.
