Is there any support for this wireless card? If not, can anybody recommend me a half mini pci e card that has bluetooth and wifi combined, like the dell 1501? thanks

i dont think theres an easy way for this.
best bet is get a wifi card.. and get a bluetooth separate.

ive heard of people using a supported bluetooth internally with direct solder to usb plug internally (4 wires for usb if no mini pci-e or spare plug for bluetooth)

but i see your R3 has a plug that resembles my dell wireless 355 dell p/n CW725
(doubt the location is ok as it needs black tape insulation to prevent mobo short for your use.. if its same wire pins)

http://support.dell....d.htm#wp1213901

which model- p/n bluetooth u have.. and wireless .. they are separate ?
is it bcm92046 ? M960G ?

No, wifi and bluetooth are on the same card. Bluetooth is supported, wifi is not.......

Maybe rebranding wifi card might work?

EDIT
NVM, it seems that bluetooth card is separate from wifi card!!!

What is the best half-mini pcie card to get for OS X?

Hi guys,
I've got an Asus 1015Pn with the same Broadcom WiFi card (BCN4313). I think the Bluetooth is integrated with WiFi but... how can I check it to be sure?

I'm running Snow Leopard 10.6.8 and the bluetooth is working fine but no way for the WiFi. :(
A guy pathed me the DSDT and in the System info I can see a Dell Airport Wireless 1395 with no driver installed... is there a way to make it works?

Here some info (Screenshot and IOREg report):
