Hi everyone, i bought this wireless card for my hackbook (acer aspire one zg5) that should work out-of-box, but it isn't...!
i've already tried the pinned post about the bcm43xx enabler, but it didn't work for me

any suggestion or any working kext such iopcifamily, io802family ecc?

done, but doesn't work. i covered it properly, in windows wifi is always on.

however in verbose seems the kext for wifi misses, some error as "couldn't alloc class for..." and some generic dependency, but no kernel panic

thanks for reply

probably, but with a fresh snowleopard there's same problem. the guide i'm following is http://www.insanelym...re one zg5&st=0

maybe i should try another method of installation

and with kexts i replace the old with the newer downloaded, and install everytime with kext helper

i'm becoming crazy...

voodoopowermini should be replaced with GeneratePStates GenerateCStates in chameleon 2.1 (not 2.0 rc4) also nullcpupm removed.

not for battery.. thats either acpibattery kext or voodoobattery .

pstates is the cpu states. cstate also.
nullcpupm NULLS the chameleon2.1 pstates, cstates... = bad
