Thanks!

I recommend the Azurewave Ai Blade BCM4352. It's a Broadcom BCM4352/BCM20702A0 BT/Wifi combo. I don't know what the price range for this is atm however. Hope it helps.

In this particular case, HPRAIDInjector.kext is a more reliable and better solution, IMHO...

 

is it because it is more update-resilient? yep, you may be right :)

I speak for a slightly different system (see sign.), but..

 

HP uses / used to blacklist WIFI cards in the BIOS. In later times, they *partially* removed this blacklisting.

 

My system is able to boot with newer cards.

 

I highly do not recommend the card you have been advised earlier (BCM4352 combos).

Poor wifi performance, only 2.4ghz and unreliable bluetooth performances (e.g. it does not work with Magic Mouse nor Trackpad).

I have tried that card for 2 months. For some stupid reason I was thinking about the old AR9285 I had installed in my lappy before switching to BCM4352Time to get some sleep!

Anyway I’ll keep the following as a reference is you encounter blacklisting / rfkill issues.

 

A (way) better solution:

 

I opted for a BCM94352HMB card (~$28 on Ebay). Wireless AC, 5ghz, BT4LE and compatible with Continuity.

 

I had to tape pin 51 to disable RFKill for bluetooth (thus I say partial blacklisting removed) and eventually even pin 20 to avoid mistakenly disabling wifi radio by hitting F12 on the keyboard.

 

One random source for this: http://rog.asus.com/...ad3e37d0f8c3913

 

Very fast card, Mimo 2x2 so compatible with the existing antennas, and the 5ghz band works quite well even on antennas made for 2.4ghz.

Bluetooth works perfectly.

 

Please note that making this work with Continuity, being reported as Airport, working on 5ghz (not my case) band is non-trivial.

Follow this guide: http://www.insanelym...-pcie-half-mini

 

Cheers   :angel:

Both methods are "update resilient". Although InfoPlist patch fails in certain scenarios when the kext is not in kernel cache.

I highly do not recommend the card you have been advised earlier (BCM4352 combos).

Same thing. BCM94352HMB is a BCM4352 combo.

Not really (eg. trivial/known). It is all done automatically by my guide.

Here are the requirements:
- BrcmPatchRAM.kext: bluetooth firmware uploader
- FakePCIID.kext and FakePCIID_BCM94352Z_as_BCM94360CS2.kext
- 5ghz patch (config.plist hotpatch)
- handoff patch (config.plist hotpatch)

Thanks guys!

Have you another card suggestion?

I live in Brazil and I cant find this card here. If I buy on ebay it will take 1 month to get here.

 

Thanks again! :)

There are other cards, but none that offer both good bluetooth compatibility and 5ghz.

Gooosh!

For some stupid reason I was thinking about the old AR9285 I had installed in my lappy before switching to BCM4352.

Time to get some sleep!

 

Thank you for pointing that out!

Try searching for it with its branded names (e.g. Dell DW1550).
