I've been trying and trying to get my Belkin f5d7001 wifi card with the Broadcom 4306 chip working in os x Lion. It worked fine with Snow Leopard but would not work with Lion natively. I know many have had this problem. The vendor id is 14e4 and the device id is 4320.
I got it working through modifying some previously modified kexts, and I want to share this fix to anyone with this card.

Anyway, here's the guide.

1) Download the zip through the attachment or follow this link: [url="http://"http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?jqz6rhhwj8sf3rr"]Broadcom 4306[/url]

2) Extract and use the kext utility to install the kexts to system/library/extensions.

3) Rebuild caches

4) Add "max_valid_dma_addr=1024" to the boot.plist.

5) Reboot

Wifi should work now!

Please post your results!

My sincere apologies!!! I did not realise that the file didn't upload. Sorry to anyone that was looking to it! And thanks for bringing it to my attention!

Anyway, I uploaded it to mediafire and posted the link, so it should work now :)
