i have a dell wireless 1505 (its got support for wireless n) that isn't working (running 10.4.6). i know that some older models of dell wireless cards are supported as-is in osx... is there any way i could alter a driver for one of those to run my current card?

luckily my ethernet card works just fine though

Can someone tell me if the Dell wireless 1505 works out of the box with Mac OS X 10.4.9? (I really need to know because i want to buy something that works well but Dell dont have the Wireless 1500 cards anymore... )

SMCWUSB-G (Ez Connect 802.11g Wireless USB2.0 Adapter)

This Wifi adapter have a ZyDAS chipset, so Altheros doesn't support anymore OSX, anyway on this site you can have the drivers and also some interesting hack info.

the drivers here.

This drivers usually need to plug in the USB adapter after boot / sleep.

Thus, are we being patient in vain? Will it be 1 month or one freakin year? Though the Sigmatel 9200 had a happy ending!

I'm about to swap the 3945 out. What is the best g or n unit that has won't drain the battery, is a solid connector- and is available via the local computer shop?

Relax dude... when we start paying these guys whe'll have a right to give them attitude, there is evidence of progress, I think it's just a matter of time.

If you can just swap-out your 3945, think yourself lucky, mine's soldered to the Laptops mainboard.

By-the-way... is anyone else using an Acer Aspire 9520? or something similar? Any ideas on getting the Bluetooth and WLAN buttons to work?

Well after more than a year, I decided to get an Atheros. I put an wanted add on Craigslist and after a couple weeks a responce came in. Well I bought it, 2 screws and it was in, fired her up installed the OS and worked natively. 'couldn't be happier no more Windows/no more Linux. Partitions and the compexity ALL GONE. Vista crashed within 3 boots of a new install (likely Skype)
Therer's is something to say about one focus and simplicity. $45 well spent and life is too short for some waits. Good luck with the Intel, really.

Atheros AR5006EX (As printed on card AR5BXB6)

Can someone help me get my wireless running...
I have a Toshiba Satellite A 135-4407 Laptop. I looked on Toshiba's website for the audio and wireless information because I have no sound and no wireless. I am running OS X 10.4.8. On the website it says that the wireless is an Atheros 802.11b/g wireless-LAN. I tried this tutorial to get it working and everything worked as should until the end. Nothing came up saying a new connection found. HELP so i can go onto fixing audio haha.
