Here are the v20. (only for macOS High Sierra). It's a patched version so please don't use it with KextsToPatch because it might not work...

 

 

For AR9485 & AR9565, Tx Rate is still limited to 11Mbps maximum...

 

Thank you

AFAIK QCA61x4 802.11ac cards are ath10k-based, so they use a different HAL/drivers/etc. You'd probably need to write a new driver for those to work, I don't think patching AirPortAtheros40 (which is ath9k-based) is going to be feasible.

answer for abhinasia  fix your USB port,  copy iousbhostfamily.kext on your desktop and modify iousbhostfamily.kext/content/plugin/appleusbehcipci.kext/content/info.plist defending your dsdt port  after that install iousbhostfamily.kext alongside usbinjectall.kext in /S/L/E I m sure that will work

 

my bluetooth is working 100%

I have already change the port number all ports are USB 2.0 but did not change number like Usbconnector 0 to 225 which means internal connector  that Bluetooth and camera are connected. Need to change that number to get work ??

Hello,

 

Just writing to tell you I have an Atheros AR5BMD222 (Atheros AR9462, vendor 168C, device 0034). I've been using v16 with Sierra for some months. Working fine, but having sometimes to switch it off and on to get it working.

 

Today I have upgraded my Acer Aspire S3-391 to High Sierra and v21 10.12 version works great on it, but v21 10.13 isn't working, WIFI not recognised with it.

 

I'm using the next code into my "<key>KextsToPatch</key>" section in Clover config.plist.

Cheers!

 

PS Great speed readings, checked on a 100/100 Mbps Fiber.

Hello chunnann, i have a GalaxyBook with a soldered QCA 6174 and Bluethoot Works on Mac Osx 10.13.

Wifi not working, as i see in this post, you made works some Atheros (i think this one is Atheros Qualcomm), do you think is possible to make it work? As i would like to do it, i can help if u need testing, hardware info, and such other things!

Plz make this thing work cause its soldered for many people xD, and dont have the possibility to swap with another one so easy.

I know it could be difficult but i can say, that if you would . like to work on it, or someone here would like to, i can pay (not a big amount lol) but is better to make thoose stuffs free, i will help the development i hope :). Also who have this wifi . card would like to donate some euros for the developers its okay for u?? 

Thanjs i really need a wifi working on my tablet, only 2 usb c ports, and one is for charing xDD I say all

hi, I tried installed the wifi kext v21 on my high sierra and both wifi and BT is working. However, after about 2 minutes, when I clicked the wifi icon, the system will stuck on loading icon (rainbow ball) and eventually freeze the system.

Does anyone got this problem too?
