That makes sense, it's an airport card. It will not work with wireless cards that aren't recognized as "Airport".
Sorry, I was a little too fast on the trigger there.
about the problem iCloud, AppStore etc., it is clear that the Ethernet driver must be loading.
We users with HP laptops, we usually have another problem:
we need a modified mach_kernel to fix Lapic issue, and we noticed that the first time, for access on Apple Services, we have to use the original kernel (using cpus=1 flag), and then, when everything is working, then...changing the kernel!
I'm going to create installers for DV6-7 6000 and 7000 series (Ivy + Sandy), and I thought about doing this in PackageMaker:
Hidden choise for Ethernet kext:
- Choise for installing Ln2Mac s RealtekRTL81xx' kext
- running a postinstall script to delete com.apple.airport.preferences.plist and networkinterfaces.plist and com.apple.boot.plist in /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration.
.......all this having already replaced the modified kernel with the installer.
...hope all be fully functional after the first reboot!
Do you think this is enough, or know more tricks about kernel issue for Apple online Services?
Thanks in advance
