Hi

I am trying to get the Wi-Fi to work on my 1001HA, 10.6.0. I have the Atheros card, and installed the IO80211.kext, but the wifi doesn't work. In System Profiler i do not see the kext loaded, neither in kextstat. I tried to load the kext using kextload, but I get the following error:

bash-3.2# kextload /System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext
/System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext failed to load - (libkern/kext) dependency resolution failure; check the system/kernel logs for errors or try kextutil(8).



I wanted to chech the kextutil, and I got the following message:
bash-3.2# kextutil /System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext
/System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext - no compatible dependency found for com.apple.iokit.IONetworkingFamily.

/System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext - no compatible dependency found for com.apple.iokit.IONetworkingFamily.
/System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext has problems:

/System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext/Contents/CodeDirectory

/System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext/Contents/CodeResources
/System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext/Contents/CodeSignature

Dependency Resolution Failures:
Only incompatible kexts found for these libraries:

Thanks in advance for any help.

Andrew,
The Atheros wifi cards will not work until you update to 10.6.6. For some reason, this is when the Atheros cards became functional.

Hi!

Thanks for your reply. I guess I have to install the legacy kernel for 10.6.6, right? What other stuff do I have to install?

That is all you should have to do. If you've installed the IO80211 kext and ran pfix or installed it through a kext installer, than you might have to delete it and redo whatever process you did to install it, and possibly run disk permissions/repair. Other than that, it should work out of the box.

Hi

Ok, I installed Snow Leo on my second partition using NBI, installed just General Extensions, installed combo update 10.6.7, because 10.6.6 update resulted in failure, then the legacy kernel. Rebooted, but I usually get stuck at Waiting for DSMOS, DSMOS has arrived, journal replay done, or AtherosL1Cethernet Ethernet adress (here is the adress). What's the problem? I heard that DSMOS is connected with graphics...


Update: I just noticed that the kext that GeneralExtensions folder gets empty every time I reboot. I tried installing them using NBI from 10.6.0 but they just disappear ): Any idea why?

Thanks in advance for help.
Andrew

You should try installing the generic Atheros wifi kext and that should get it working. Check your /System/Library/Extensions folder and delete any possible wifi kexts that are already in there.

Hi,

Like I said, it usually hangs on "waiting for DSMOS", "DSMOS has arrived". I also get the error:
"acpi_smc_platformPlugin::start - waitForService(resourceMatching(AppleIntelCpuPowerManagement) timed out"
Last, but not least, the /extra/generalextesions (I used NBI) is deleted every time I restart, so there are no kexts there ):

Hi,

Reinstalled OS X, but updated to 10.6.8, now everythings, except wifi. I tried many IO80211Family.kext, but none of the worked. What do you mean by "generic atheros kext"?

No, the IO80211Family.kext should work. Did you run pfix or kext installer or repair disk permissions? You should delete the kext out of /System/Library/Extensions, then restart, then add it back into that folder (don't restart!), then run pfix (don't restart!), then run disk permissions through Disk Utility. This should get it working.

Great! It works, thanks a lot.

And on my other netbook, I have RT3090 and Ralink Wireless Utility installed. I connects to the router, but I cannot access the internet, can you help me, or shall I start a new topic?

On Snow Leopard, the RT3090 is not compatible. If you were able to get Lion running (which is pretty much impossible), then it would work. It will never work on Snow Leopard.

Weird. It was written all over that it wasn't supposed to work.
