Someone managed to successfully install the Atheros AR9285 under snow leopard 10.6.0?
I am successful changing the Kext ID "2b" to recognize the Atheros AR9285, but I can not find gains no wireless network.

Yikes!! I've been trying for ages to get my AR9285 wireless working in SL 10.6.2 lurking on forums all over the place.

I've finally made progress and it's now being recognized by OSX, however the airport won't "turn on". Looking at the system logs I find this:

"ATHR: unknown locale: 60" -- which matches when I look in my sys-profiler under "AirPort" it reads:

Software Versions:
Menu Extra: 6.2 (620.24)
configd plug-in: 6.2 (620.15.1)
System Profiler: 6.0 (600.9)
Network Preference: 6.2 (620.24)
AirPort Utility: 5.4.2 (542.23)
IO80211 Family: 3.1 (310.6)
Interfaces:
en2:
Card Type: AirPort Extreme (0x168C, 0x1089)
Firmware Version: Atheros 9285: 2.1.8.7
Locale: Unknown
Country Code:
Supported PHY Modes: 802.11 b/g/n
Supported Channels: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14
Wake On Wireless: Supported
Status: Not Associated


The
"Locale: Unknown
Country Code: "
is what I believe the problem is.

My question to any gurus out there is; Can I manually update the locale and/or country code?

I didn't try it, but worked on 10.6.3. But that is a less problem. You can update your system and everything would be fine. Am I missing something or what is holding you?

Where are you? What is working and what do you want to do with the system? Just post the questions.
Incase you want to update, it can also be done by downloading from apple's website, be sure to pick combo-package.
