Hey there, did you do a fresh OS X install when you installed your new Dell 1505 card or did you just swap the old one out for it and it worked straight away?

I never do a reinstall or fresh install, that is a Windows way. For the card I didn't I replace the old one becuase my laptop has 2 slots, in windows both cards works perfectly.

The card needs to have the original IO80211Family.kext in order to work, and since I installed from the Original Leopard DVD, no Kalyway or iATKOS becuase they use other kexts from previous versions or modded I did't need to reninstall that kext.

Hmm that's odd. I thought the vanilla kernel (Kalyway DVD) should mean I had an unpatchedkext. Will try with a different image lateronthen. Thanksmuchly:blink:

I installed the Intel 2200 driver and it detects networks, but when I try to connect it switches back and forth between searching for networks and finding the address. Anyone know how to fix it?

Hi there.

I have installed Kalyway_Leo_10.5.2 in my HP dv6780se and everything is fine, apart from Intel PRO/Wireless 4965AGN card.

I was just wondering did anybody managed to get a fix for it yet? Any progress?

Any help is much appriciated.

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards,
a$h


best bet is to install a hacked bios and change the card, i use a dell 1500 in my dv9700 which is the same series as yours, just larger screen.

mac girl, are you sure you use dell 1505 because that is an INTEL 4965 chipset, not the broadcom in the 1500?

Hacked Bios Is Here For f53 http://forum.insanel...o...1474&st=120

i linked it to the forum its in because there are good instructions, I also think that maybe this info should be moved or relabeled, it took me a week on google to find the pages, its all about removing the whitelish from hp laptops, but it is just labeled hp dv6000 under tiger. Any help I hope it is useful to others

I have a 1505 and a 4965 card, btw, when my eyes see BCM4328 in a small black square they believe is a Broadcom chipset, and they see a Intel logo in the other card.

And yes there is also a Dell 1500 trumobile wireless card.

Hi all unfortuantely I am having problems with a new Dell TrueMobile 1400 (Broadcom BCM4309MP) on a Dell D600. I've added the <string>pci14e4,4309</string> to the IO80211Family.kext in the appropriate spot, and also tried modifying the NetworkInterfaces.plist with en0, en1, & en2 each time with no luck. Repaired permissions, multiple reboots. Not detecting wireless card. It works in Windows XP and I've made sure it's enabled in BIOS, but still no luck. Been spending hours reading through forums on this, does anyone have any ideas/steps to share they did with this exact card (or similar) to get it to work? Would be highly grateful. This is on a Kalyway 10.5.2 install. I'm wondering if there is maybe a different method that needs to be followed in Leopard vs. Tiger?

OK, I managed to pull the ZyDAS 1211 for the USB dongle (unsure of make) I have. It has worked pretty well for the last week or so, and all of a sudden this morning, I cannot stay connected for more than 10 minutes at a crack. No pages load, Opera 9.5 freezes out (not even Activity Monitor or kill -9 as root will put it to rest), and half the time, it takes the Finder with it.

As a result, I've had to restart my computer about 70 times today. I've tried to verify what it could/couldn't be--I've determined it's not the USB ports (iPod charges, 60GB disk is picked up by OS X, it's not Parallels (this happens regardless of whether I shut down its virtual NATs), and it's not Opera (Safari and Camino 1.6 crash as well). Reinstalling the driver (4.5.9.0) does not do anything to rectify the situation. Moreover, it has to be on my end, as I can seem to connect in via my iPod Touch.

I seem to suspect it's something with the dongle itself (although it seems to work OK on Windows XP), or something in OS X between the dongle and the network interfaces.

What happens is that the ZD WLan app shows a cut in signal (75-84% vs. 88-95%), no transmission or reception of packets. Pings back to the gateway (set up as 192.168.0.1) show 100% packet loss. Moreover, the dongle's light stops blinking and does not return. I am at a loss as I had interviews today and I had to struggle to get the basic stuff I needed.

The USB ethernet is set up as en3--en2 would be the ethernet if I had it working, and en0 and en1 were installed with iATKOS and have never worked.

I have no idea what the heck is going on, or how to rectify it. Right now, the wireless is my only way online--and any help in the right direction will be greatly appreciated

Running iATKOS 2.0i (10.5.2/build 9C7010) on a stock Compaq SR2180NX--if anyone needs more specifics, please PM me.

Thanks in Advance!


Update (20:54 CDT): The problem continues, having required 26 hard restarts (flip the power switch off) in the past 90 minutes. I cannot get more than 20 minutes of online access without OS X freezing and throwing a fit. This is really starting to get annoying, and I'm mulling just starting over (despite nearly 100GB of stuff to move)...

I'm trying to use a 3com 3CRUSB10075 usb wifi on Jas 10.5.4 with Zydas USB Driver. The device is already recognized in System Profiler, but do not appear in Network configuration in System Preferences. I already looked and installed other Zydas drivers, but to no success. Any hints, suggestions? Thanks.

Well, just installed the latest driver and after clicking refresh a couple of times I got my old zydas 1211 working.

You can grab the latest driver here: http://www.macwirele...11gUSBStick.dmg
A manual is available on that same site.

Hope it helps.

@relikwie Hi. Thanks for the link. I also tried this but can't get it to work. Looking at the log files, I found this error whenever I insert the USB Wifi:

The IOUSBFamily was not able to enumerate a device

weird because I can see the device in the System Profiler. Any thoughts? THanks
