Try setting the device id to 4306 or 4320

I've got my 4318 card working with the same setting accept it is <string>pci14e4,4318</string> in stead of <string>pci14e4,4320</string>. OsX86 10.4.3.

Thanx for this great tip!

---------------------------------------
Tried to internet with the thing. It completely hangs. Gonna try some other things. It makes a connection though, so that's a good start.

i tried that for my belkin f5d7000 and i cant get it to be recognized at all.

unknown device gives me this info:
ven_14e4&dev_4318&subsys_700001799&rev_02

i edited the info.plist to include the device id and airport cant see it.
i'm using a d945psnlk

*edit*
i finally figured it out... it turnes out it was the patched 80211family.kext file that was the culprit, so i deleted it and copied over the one from the 10.4.4 and added my device id to the info.plist and boom it recognized it right away

thx Cheescakes for the info took me awhile though, but i finally got it

That worked like a charm for me

my dell 1350 has dev id 4320 , i used the kext from 10.4.4 went into the kext and opened the info plist and added mine, the i HAD TO
sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/io80211family.kext
after you hit enter put this next
sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/io80211family.kext

then i reboot and went into network pref and it found my new port.. etc.. and it works perfectly

here is my kext

how do you find the dev id of your card?

in windows, goto device manager and choose the card, under details i believe it will show the dev info etc......

:) YES - Linksys WPC54G v1 working in Compaq Evo N610C under 10.4.3 using the IO80211Family.kext attached earlier in this forum!. I am now ditching the D-Link USB dongle using the RA Technology open source drivers as that approach was much less stable. This rocks!

I have a wierd one for you guys.

After editing the kext from 10.4.4 and adding 4318, OSX finds my miniwifi and even the button and light works on the laptop (compaq v200) it also finds my WEP enabled network

Here is the wierd part it will not associate with my network and system profiler shows airport extreme but it says that it is off. WTF? even tho the light is on.

Anyways I know one of you geeks(no pun intended) will know whats up.

Thanks in advance,
HooKed

I have read every page on this post and I have a Linsys WMP54G v2 and I have got the kext i think to work. Windows XP sais i have a broadcom 4320 chipset. I added the rest into the plist such as 4318 and 4306 just incase, it seems XP is not always accurate with this. I reboot my computer and an ethernet port magically shows up in Network. On the menu bar I have the ethernet symbol and when i click on it it tells me Airport: not configured. When i go to system profiler it shows me an Airport Card in the Airport menu which was not there before. Tells me I have an Airport Extreme and that Airport is currently turned off. I was wondering if anyone has a solution to this, and how to turn it on, thank you.

Here is a screenshot:

I went to System Preferences and then clicked on Network. there was no airport port detected, instead it seems that it shows as an ethernet port because there was no ethernet port detected before the new kext.
Help with this would be greatly appreciated since it;s my only way on the net.

I have installed this kext and it finds my card (I have an Acer 5024 laptop).

In System Profiler it is also there and under en1. But it doesnt find any networks. Nor does the light work on my laptop. Occasionally the PS2 drivers seems to crash but that may be a coincident not related to this issue.

What else can I do?

Its a broadcom 4318 chip.

I have a Dell D610 with 1370 MiniPCI (Broadcom 4318). I cannot get OSX to see it at all.

I am hoping to get a 1350 from a D600 soon, I see that those work.

Thank you everyone for all of your hard work!

Hello,
I have a Dell Inspiron 8500 with 1300 MiniPCI (Broadcom 4320). And my relase is "macosx_10.4.3_8f1111a_JaS_Patch_4.2b"

I 'm glad to announce that it works prfectly for me, and i want to thank evreryone who have worked hard to find this fine solution.
I did all that you wrote but without using the Terminal (except one moment) because i don't undertand it :)

1) The Edit of the Kext (file :AppleAirPortBrcm4311.kext/contents/info.plist) has been done under XP using WordPad

Edit from
<array>
<string>pci14e4,4311</string>
<string>pci14e4,4312</string>
<string>pci14e4,4324</string>
</array>

to

<array>
<string>pci14e4,4311</string>
<string>pci14e4,4312</string>
<string>pci14e4,4320</string>
<string>pci14e4,4312</string>
</array>

Then I saved the new "IO80211Family.kext" on my disk

2) Boot on MacOSX86 as "root"
Drag the modified "IO80211Family.kext" into " /System/Library/Extensions/"

3) Use The "Terminal" :) to copy and paste (without understanding what i was doing)
sudo -s
chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions
chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions
kextcache -k /System/Library/Extensions

4) Boot again and it works :D :D :D (connected to airport without any problem)

Thanks again, and excuse my poor english (i'm french)

Thanks to all for all the help -
I have a problem, though -
I edited info.plist and moved the kext into the extensions folder -
when I reboot, though, it just hangs on the apple logo screen with the black spinny circle - -

Could someopne please please please help me remove that kext from the prompt after booting with -s?

I tried rm /system/library/extensions/IO80211.kext (or whatever the name of it is.. dont have it in front of me) - but it says that IO80211.kext is a directory - -

How can I remove it so I can boot again?

thanks!

by the way, I have a truemobile 1350

i got a bit of a problem. i added the modified io80211family.kext, and i got osx to recognize the card. the problem im experiencing is that when i try to connect to the access point it just hangs while its "trying" to connect, and if i try opening other apps they dont go in. only way out of this is by doing a hard-reboot.

i have a 700m dell laptop
truemobile 1350

soo.... any of you know what's going on?

OKay, I went through this whole thread and I did not find an answer, so I guess i will just ask... is there any chance that this will work on the old 4301 chipset, (its "B" only) I have a friend who really wants to try this out, but needs wireless on her dell 5100 : ). Any help would be appricated.
