I can't find any information on getting my laptop's internal wireless to work. It is an Atheros AR9485 (thats what Windows says) with the HW ID as: PCI\VEN_168C&DEV_0032&SUBSYS_1838103C&REV_01
Other people said to buy a new card but I can't afford a new wireless card as I spent all my money on the Mountain Lion DVD :( Any ways to get my wireless to work and I would be so happy. I couldn't have gotten a different computer because this one was a present from some friends in the US (but i dont like windows so there). thx in advance guys and please help.

PS also if you know how to get AMD Radeon 7640G to work.

if u fake device id 30 instead of 32 it might work. cant guarantee anything.. look at the ar9285 fix in dsdt and modify it.

im pretty sure if u change the card it will deny boot with error of unsuported wireless card (whitelist) and i dont know if there is a bios mod with NO Whitelist for sp57048.exe or sp58982.exe bios

How do I do this? I found a patch file for ar9285 fix on olarila.com how do I modify it?

into device name_adr 0x00 parent_adr 0x001C0001 insert
begin
Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized)\n
{\n
    Store (Package (0x0C)\n
	    {\n
		    "AAPL,slot-name", \n
		    Buffer (0x08)\n
		    {\n
			    "AirPort"\n
		    }, \n
		    "device-id", \n
		    Unicode ("*"), \n
		    "device_type", \n
		    Buffer (0x08)\n
		    {\n
			    "AirPort"\n
		    }, \n
		    "model", \n
		    Buffer (0x34)\n
		    {\n
			    "Atheros 9285 8802.11 b/g/n Wireless Network Adapter"\n
		    }, \n
		    "subsystem-id", \n
		    Buffer (0x04)\n
		    {\n
			    0x8F, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00\n
		    }, \n
		    "subsystem-vendor-id", \n
		    Buffer (0x04)\n
		    {\n
			    0x6B, 0x10, 0x00, 0x00\n
		    }\n
	    }, Local0)\n
    DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0))\n
    Return (Local0)\n
}
end

	 Return (Local0)\n
}
end
however the subsystem id of the device id 30 is not 8F

look in ioregistry explorer to see if the card is at 0x001C0001
