Can some of you list network cards that you have working (native), I can't seem to get mine to show up so I'll go pick one up at the store.
Hey all, I think I have some really good news. I have my Intel 3945 Wifi adapter in my D620 working. If this has already been done, then please, ignore this.
I've been using Snow Leopard 10.6.3 on my D620 for two weeks now (approximately) with great luck. However, the other day, I noticed that it seemed like my system had a memory leak which seemingly was caused by the Nvidia video kext. So, I started looking for some fixes.
Well, this morning (Sat, 17 April 2010) I downloaded the RAR made by Leppy710M, and installed it on my D620. When it booted, I noticed that I had an AIRPORT icon in my menu bar, and when I opened system preferences, I was prompted to add a new AirPort device. WOW!
My hardware is a D620 with the NVS 110M video card and the Intel 3945 Wifi card. In the past I had played around with the Voodoo Labs 3945 driver, but never had any luck with it - until today. And Wi-fi catcher mode is turned off in the BIOS. BIOS version is A10, BTW.
The only problem I am having with this is while it is showing my neighbors pop on/off the list of available networks, I cannot connect to any of them, not even the unsecured ones. Looks like DHCP is not working out of the box for AirPort.
Please see the screenshots on this thread from an earlier post of mine this morning http://www.insanelym...00#entry1450362
If someone could tell me what info they need me to provide on my hardware, software, or firmware configuration, I'd be more than happy to. Send me a private email, IM, etc. I also tried posting in the official wifi driver thread for the 3945, but it has been closed/locked. I also tried to post more screenshots, but I keep getting 500-type errors from the webserver here.
