Yes, bcm5787m work, but now I can't use "Sleep" function! Laptop's display is off, but fan, LEDs, and more another - steel work.
And only long press power button can help!
Can somebody chek it?
I have Acer Aspire 4310. + Kalyway 10.5.2 (vanilla kernel 9.2.2)

Hi,

I have Hexedited the BCM5787M Kext with the BCM5784M ID (14e4 1698) and it works!!!!!!!

Thank you Nobb1X :|

Here is the kext to install, use Kexthelper, repair permissions and reboot
Just follow Nobb1X instructions (Readme file in zip with the kext) to change MAC adress and to be able to connect...

Attached File  Broadcom_5784M.zip   109.33KB   5496 downloads

Here is the link to download the Magnat2's script which makes utilisation easier :)

Hmmm, the same problem happened to OmegaX during the test phase of the kext, he solved, i think with a whole new installation, but try to IM he if he's still around
