DSDT cannot drive hardware. There are times when you can "spoof" a different hardware device ID (which is what the driver detects to be enabled), and make your device look like another device (that is, of course, very similar). I did that once with an Atheros card, but, it won't work for your current one.

LatinMcG can probably give you more info on it, as he is the DSDT/networking guru. ;)

Just because a question is answered doesn't mean we'll close the thread. ;) It's just not generally what we do.

yah cant rebrand that i know of the ath9k type cards.. the ath5k yes but they are buggy as it is.
9k is better cards, 5k is almost obsolete A/B/G only.

the ar5b91 can be subven, subsys rebranded in dsdt.

im not a guru.. but im close.. i seen others that know a lot moooooore than me.. but they moved on and retired or hardly logon anymore.

OK, take a look at the links LatinMcG posted on the previous page, will work native OTB in OSX and Windows just as well, you can see a picture of it installed here Black Mountain using same PCIe to mini PCIe adaptor (I painted the slot bracket black) and similar card but I used apple branded AR5BXB72 for a couple bucks more
