Hi all.

I am new to OS X, I just built my first Hackintosh around a week ago.

Primary question: Will this little script work with 10.9 Mavericks?

Secondary, less important question: My device id is 4329 - it is a WN611B mini PCI card. Any idea if it will work?

Mainly I would like to know if it is compatible with Mavericks, the card compatibility is secondary. Because if it can't work in Mavericks, then its useless to know if this script will work with the card.

Thank you for all the help, and especially for the helpful script!

I'm out of the osx86 for some years now, but, have anyone with 4322 tried to override the on off button of the wifi by putting a stick of tape in the correct pin? Did the job for me years ago, if anyone wants to know which pin it is ask and I'll be glad to help :)

I have a BroadCom BCM4309MP minipci card. I downloaded that script from this thread.
It went through without ans errors. But no wireless at all! Seems to be a Dell 1420(?)
I try und er SnowLeopard 10.6.8.

Sys-profiler says, that there's no pci-card is installed in this computer and there is only the
lan under "Network". The driver gets an error during boot-up wich says

failed to resolve library dependencies


The former installed Ralink RT2500 mini-pci showed up there, but got no connection,
since the ralink-tool sayed "no device".

Any suggestions?

Hi,

 

Hopefully you are still following this thread - Just turned my old laptop into a nice hackintosh for OS 10.5.

Unfortunately WiFi doesn't work. Did everything as described in the post but can't turn the card on. Also followed all the solutions you wrote.

Can't turn it on neither in the menu bar or in the WiFi settings.

 

Would really appreciate any help since I really need WiFi!

 

Regards from Vienna,

tacerus

 

Btw: The enabler script made my audio work xD


Solved the problem.

WiFi was disabled in the BIOS, whyever.
