Anyone have any luck getting Broadcom Wireless PCI card (Buffalo WLI2-PCI-G54S) getting recognized by Kalyway 9A527?

In tiger my PCI card is recognized using the regular edits.

I've selected everything that has to do with networking and wireless networking in custom part of installation when installing 9A527. Am I suppose to install something special thats not really obvious that I should?

Update: I patched the Leopard 9A559 dmg (9a527 kernel) to work on a hackintosh, and I can confirm that Leopard 9A559 contains the necessary drivers for the Buffalo Wireless PCI card to be automatically recognized without any patching of any files.

So after reading some posts I found that other people who have the new iMacs that have broadcom wireless are having trouble getting their wireless to work. So it appears that Apple didn't include support for the broadcom wireless in 9A527 seed.

However, upon comparing my AppleAirPortBrcm4311.kext info.plist 9a527 (Hackintosh Version) to my Macbooks AppleAirPortBrcm.kext info.plist which I've installed 9a559 it appears that 9a559 added more support for the broadcom wireless cards.

This is the info.plist (AppleAirPortBrcm4311.kext) under 9a559
<key>Broadcom 802.11 PCI</key>        <dict>            <key>APRoamTrigger</key>            <integer>-91</integer>            <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key>            <string>com.apple.driver.AirPortBrcm43xx</string>            <key>IOClass</key>            <string>AirPort_Brcm43xx</string>            <key>IOMatchCategory</key>            <string>IODefaultMatchCategory</string>            <key>IONameMatch</key>            <array>                <string>pci106b,4e</string>                <string>pci14e4,4318</string>                <string>pci14e4,4320</string>                <string>pci14e4,4324</string>                <string>pci14e4,4325</string>                <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>            </array>            <key>IOProviderClass</key>            <string>IOPCIDevice</string>        </dict>

My device ID for my broadcom wireless card is listed in there, among more others that have been added by Apple. So now I'm just assuming that the driver is missing from the 9a527 build.

Is there a way to find the driver files in the 9a559 build and then copy them over to my Hackintosh, and maybe that will get my broadcom wireless to be recognized?

Kalyway worked fine for the first installation. After a crash ... it not working fine even after installing it many times. So, I suggest you to try the same kext after a backup.
