Many thanks guys. AirportAtheros AR5008 works perfectly in -x32/64 mode.

Will this also work for the DWA 542 Wifi card? If so, do I need to modify the kext or just install it?

Thanks

Just try out, but you have to add your own ID to the driver, it contains only one ID as original.

So that I don't mess this up:

1) I need to enter an ID similar to what 10torsion did above? How do I know what ID to enter?
2) Is there a really simple tool to install kext files on SL?

Thanks

on my dual core rig it works fine (Atheros AR5B91) , just changed the interface dev id (168c,2a) and its working fine (in 32/64 bit mode).

Yes like above, take DPCI Manager for OSX to find out ID of yours, and install it with Kext Helper.

I dont think this driver supports USB, cause there aren't any USB Airport Cards, but you can try it out, stay with pci168,23

I can say it doesn't work for me. D-LInk DWA-522 with a GA-EP45-UD3P mobo. Added <string>pci168c,23</string> to the info.plist and nothing. This card works fine in Snow Leopard and Vista.

Thanks for all your help.

Using the DPCIM I get 168c:0023 for my Atheros Communications AR51416

Changing the newly downloaded kext file to 168c,23 didn't work - i still have no airport card recognized. I'm using kext helper to install it (and didn't remove the old one). Is there an obvious mistake that I'm making here? Do i need to change it still to -32?

Thanks again!

Checkout netkas.org and get the new Atheros2.1

Works on my Dlink 556 :angry: in 64bit

So the kext is above and the kext we're meant to modify and on netkas.org, there is some instruction to set the devid. As I'm not sure what that is, presumably I'm not doing things correctly.

Any additional guidance or could it be that the Dlink 542 is a lost cause?

Works on my Dlink 556 :) in 64bit

Checkout the comments against the atheros post and download the atheros kext from 10.6.2.

Then change the id to yours...
