02:00.0 Network controller : Atheros Communications Inc. AR9462 Wireless Network Adapter [168c:0034] (rev 01)
I am trying to get this card working in my Samsung NP550P5C laptop with Mountain Lion 10.8.2. It is a combo wireless / bluetooth card but I assume that the wireless device behaves the same way as in a normal non-combo card.
So far I am able to load AirportAtheros21 as well AirportAtheros40 by making vendorid and productid replacements based on the 10.7.4 IO80211Networking kext.
Since AirPortAtheros40 is loaded first and I see the following in the kernel log:
start [/SourceCache/AirPortDriverAtheros9380/AirPortDriverAtheros9380-431.14.10/src/common/lmac/ath_dev/darwin/AtherosController.cpp:962] load failed
I remove the ids from AirportAtheros21 so it doesn't load on boot.
Now I have just the following loaded:
So far so good...
However I don't know how to proceed now that the AirPortAtheros40 kext is loaded however no Wireless Interface is available in SystemPrefs.Network.
Any hints or guidance would be appreciated.
I have tried deleting and reconfiguring interfaces by removal of /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist
Also tried removing the following:
But this was clutching at straws with no net effect....
Any one able to help ?
