i'm trying to get my dwa-556 to get detected by my dell xps 420. i'm on lion 10.7.3. i've isolated all of my non-vanilla kext, but it still won't get detected.
the verbose boot shows this error
applesmbuspci start failed to get acpi path for provider
start [/sourcecache/airportdriveratheros9380/airportdriveratheros9380-430.14.9src/common/lmac/ath_dev/darwin/atheroscontroller.cpp:962] load failed
i've put the card in a gateway gm5626 with a fresh lion install (10.7.0), and the card was detected OOB as it should be. the thing that i notice is when i boot from my usb installer, the card was still loaded fine on the gateway. but on my dell it won't load either way, from usb boot or within the os. so i'm thinking it's the xps 420 itself that doesn't work with the dwa-556? since the usb boot doesn't have anything conflicting. i've also tried different atherosfix.kext, but it still doesn't work.
some kext i'm using right now are [ intel82566mm, voodoohda, elliottforcelegacyRTC]
please help me isolate this problem.
