Thanks FreakyMac!

hello guys,

I have an issue with a PCMCIA card Linksys wpc54g. I purchased the card specifically for Kalyway 10.5.1 installed on IBM T60. I have installed a patch for IOPCCard and now the card is displayed as a PC Card, identified as "pci14e4,4318", Function: Network Controller;

ioreg -l | grep IOPCI | grep pci14e4 shows nothing;
dmesg displays this:
IOPCCard info: cs: cb_alloc(bus 22): vendor 0x14e4, device 0x4318
IOPCCard info: cs: cb_alloc(bus 22): found 1 functions
IOCardBusDevice: binding socket 0 function 0 to card services.
IOPCCard info: cs: cb_config(bus 22)
IOPCCard info: fn 0 bar 1: mem 0xe4302000-0xe4303fff
IOPCCard info: irq 16
IOPCCard info: cs: cb_free(bus 22)
IOPCCard: shutting down socket 0.
IOPCCard: calling terminate on socket 0 function 0 nub 0x33dfa00.
IOCardBusDevice: releasing socket 0 function 0 from card services.
IOPCCard info: cs: cb_alloc(bus 22): vendor 0x14e4, device 0x4318
IOPCCard info: cs: cb_alloc(bus 22): found 1 functions

IOPCCard info: cs: cb_config(bus 22)
IOPCCard info: fn 0 bar 1: mem 0xe4302000-0xe4303fff
IOPCCard info: irq 16

The board is not recognised as an airport card so I can't use it.
Any hint will be highly appreciated.

Whenever I try to enter the code below it says " No Such directory".

I am using MAC OSX JaS 10.4.8.

TRYING TO INSTALL BROADCOM 4322 WIRELESS.

PLEASE HELP!!


Ok Heres the deal, people with Broadcom Wireless (aka Dell Wireless) have been having trouble with getting it to work , or getting it recognize on 10.4.8 and people have been going to thread-to-thread just to find a solution so i decided to make this SIMPLE little tutorial to help all you Broadcom People, Ok lets begin :)

1: Open Terminal (Hard Drive icon -> Applications -> Utilities)

2: type this ->

sudo su

3: then this ->
cd /System/Library/Extensions

4: then ->
cd /System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleAirPortBrcm4311.kext/Contents/

5: then
nano -w Info.plist

6: Ok then scroll down until you see:

<key>IONameMatch</key>
<array>
<string>pci14e4,4328</string>
<string>pci14e4,4329</string>
<string>pci14e4,432a</string>
<string>pci14e4,4311</string>
<string>pci14e4,4312</string>
<string>pci14e4,4313</string>
<string>pci14e4,4319</string>
<string>pci14e4,431a</string>

7: before <string>pci14e4,4319</string> add this: <string>pci14e4,4318</string> (change the 4318 to your ID, Mines is 4318 because i have Dell Wireless 1370)

8: then Control X, then Y then hit Enter

9: then Do:
sudo reboot

10: then you should see a Blank Baseball Feild Icon (airport icon) on the finder bar

11: Open up Terminal then type ->
sudo su

12: Then ->
cd /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/

13: Then ->
nano -w /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist

14: You should See this

<key>BSD Name</key>
<string>en0</string>
<key>IOBuiltin</key>
<false/>
<key>IOInterfaceType</key>
<integer>6</integer>
<key>IOInterfaceUnit</key>
<integer>0</integer>
<key>IOLocation</key>
<string></string>
<key>IOMACAddress</key>
<data>

15: change that to this:

<key>BSD Name</key>
<string>en1</string>
<key>IOBuiltin</key>
<false/>
<key>IOInterfaceType</key>
<integer>6</integer>
<key>IOInterfaceUnit</key>
<integer>1</integer>
<key>IOLocation</key>
<string></string>
<key>IOMACAddress</key>
<data>
16: then Ctrl-X -> Y -> Enter

17: Then
sudo reboot

18: After Reboot, Click the Airport Icon on the finder bar and click 'Network Preferences' It'll Say

Has Found the following Port

'Airport'

19: Click Ok then click the drop down box that has Show: next to it then click 'Airport' then click Apply Now and then, Click the Airport icon then select your Network and then Your Done

Congrats, You have Wireless in 10.4.8 :)

Hi,

How do I find my Device ID?

I use a Dell WLAN 1395 Wireless minicard. I've just managed to get dualboot with Vista working. I checked in Device manager under "Hardware ID", where there's some stuff I can't figure out like XYZ&ABC_4315&ASD

So I assumed my device ID is 4315 tried the process, but it doesn't detect my card in the airport utility.

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks,
Teja.

does this work for the Dell draft n card???
if it does, how do I find the device id?

My situation is that the card is recognized as an Airport extreme in the system profiler, but is always turned off.
The baseball diamond shaped wifi symbol shows up on the menu bar, but tells me that it's not configured, and its not detected in the network options in system preferences.
The wifi light on my laptop doesn't even turn on.

The only time the card has ever been on and actually working (although still not recognized by network preferences) was during first boot up (I still had no control over it; I couldn't turn it off).

Has someone had a similar issue? Help!!


I'm in the same exact situation. Tried everything..patch, tape whatever..the airport is always off

I'm surprised that this made it to the Genius Bar. I haven't had a Hackint0sh since 2009 because the hard drive died and now I have my Macbook and I made this Tutorial when I was a freshmen in High School around 15 years old. I am now almost 19 years old and I am glad this has helped a lot of people. I made this is because on some Tutorials were not really crystal clear on directions so I made this to help Newcomers to the OS X world. And Thank you for these recent inputs.
