OK,

Here goes nothing :D

 

I'm not sure if it's gonna work or not because I don't have the same mainboard as you but it is worth a shot

 

You have to copy the file I attached inside /System/Library/Extensions/ BUT BEFROE YOU DO make a copy of "IO80211Family.kext" to your desktop and then replace the existing file with the one I posted, after that run "Kext Utility" to fix the permissions of the "Extensions" folder then reboot your computer and see if your wifi is working. Hopefully it works!

 

Fingers Crossed!

 

Don't forget to copy the original file to your desktop for replacing it if it didn't work.

No luck :( 

 

Unfortunately it does not work. I noticed that in the system / extension folder there is also a file called "IO80211FamilyV2.kext" .

I don't know if it does matter..

 

Anyway thanks a lot for your help!!

wow I followed the links, it seems that for some peoples it works! I'd like to do on myself, but It is not a simple kext installer.. But really I don't understand how to do it.

well actually I looked through the posts but not in depth and for some people it works and fro some people it doesn't.

 

try using the file in this post: http://www.insanelym...ards/?p=2279677

 

Update:

 

Test this one

 

Open terminal after you replaced the kext file and run each command one by one then reboot.

 

1. sudo nvram -c

2. sudo purge
3. sudo rm -f /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/kernelcache && sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u /
4. sudo update_dyld_shared_cache -force
