Hello everyone, I'm trying to get OSX working properly on my friend's Acer D255. I used netbook installer and it's on 10.6.0. I swapped in my old 1390 card out of my 10v to get wireless working. This is a really strange issue. the 1390 worked fine initially without any hacks, and then as soon as I installed voodoohda (extracted from the iatkos s3 dvd), i rebooted with -v -f and wifi no longer works. You can see the airport icon turn on and then turn off briefly after login. When I click "turn Wifi on" it does nothing. I've tried running kext utility and repairing disk permissions, but nothing seems to be helping. I also tried removing voodooHDA from s/l/e, but it made no difference. Anyone know what could be causing this?

disregard, figured it out. If anyone else has this issue, just delete extension.mkext in /extra.

DAMMIT. It did it again for no apparent reason. Deleting extensions.mkext in /Extra does not work anymore... Only gives a kernel panic on boot. I'm extremely confused because this is a card that works natively in OS X. This is getting really irritating, I'm about to delete OS X and just put Windows on it and put the factory wifi card back in. Ridiculous. This makes absolutely no sense considering I had no issues using this card on my 10v.
