Hi.

You can find some information in Netkas' site, here: http://netkas.org/?p=315
He provides a legacy kext (http://files.netkas....rosFix.kext.zip), so you can use your card in 32 or 64 bits mode.
more informations here: http://www.efixusers...hread.php?t=528
Hope this helps.

Edit: have bought one today, just had to change pci id in kext, mine is pci168c,29; works like a charm.
here is modified kext: Attached File  AtherosFix.kext.zip   4.24KB   288 downloads

Hi.
Are you sure your id is 168c:0029 ?

I have read here that it works, but with kext available on thread first post, which contains pci id 168c:0023

Maybe you can try this kext, or show us what lspci reports about your card ?

I don't see the card under pci cards as i didn't declare it in DSDT, but i'll try to do it asap.

Just let me know.


My adapter is D-Link DWA-547

lspci output:
04:01.0 Network controller [0280]: Atheros Communications Inc. AR922X Wireless Network Adapter [168c:0029] (rev 01)
Subsystem: D-Link System Inc Unknown device [1186:3a78]

Edit:

Done it with DSDT, no kext, but TheKing had already done here
so code working on my mobo is
Device (WLAN)                {                    Name (_ADR, Zero)                    Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized)                    {                    	Store (Package ()                    	{                    		"AAPL,slot-name", Buffer () {"PCI Slot 1"},                        	"class-code", Buffer () {0x00, 0x80, 0x02, 0x00},                        	"device-id", Buffer () { 0x2A, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 },                        	"device_type", Buffer () { "AirPort" },                        	"model", Buffer () {"Atheros 802.11 b/g/n Wireless Network Adapter"},                        	"subsystem-id", Buffer () {0x87, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00},                        	"subsystem-vendor-id", Buffer () {0x6B, 0x10, 0x00, 0x00},                        	"vendor-id", Buffer () {0x8C, 0x16, 0x00, 0x00}                        }, Local0)                    	DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0))                    	Return (Local0)                    }                }
