danillll, have you try to configure the device in System Preferences (Network)?



Hello Kizwan,

First Thanks a lot for your reply, I am so glad somebody is trying to help me :angel:

When I go to system preferences -> network, I only see my
ethernet (activated), bluetooth and firewire listed there.
If I try to add a new interface, I don't get an option to add a wireless interface, is there anything specific I need to do?

I also tried to edit the network interface and changed en0 to en1 with no luck.

It looks to me that the AppleAirPortBrcm4311.kext is not getting assigned to the wireless card, so not sure what to do.

Hi danillll,

Please post your ioreg. You can obtain it from System Profiler (Logs). Also if possible system.log. It located at "/var/log" folder.

Maybe we can find what is going wrong in this files. :angel:

Thanks again Kizwan, I will post them once I get home.

BTW I have a snippet of the both system.log and ioreg in my previous post, but I will get the complete logs once I finish work.

Thanks a lot.

Hi danillll,

The ioreg that you posted is not complete. Can you post the one from the System Profiler? It is in the "Logs" section.

Posted Image

Copy & paste to text editor.

EDIT: I can't find your previous post. Can you provide the post number? I think your card is disabled or not getting any power at all.
1) Does the LED on the card lit?
2) Which release did you use? iDeneb, iPC, retail or etc?
3) Can you tell me about your wired network card?

I'll wait the complete ioreg from you.

Good luck. :(

Hello Kizwan,

Sorry about that, this is the ioreg as requested
new ioreg


1) Does the LED on the card lit?
Yep, it does lit

2) Which release did you use? iDeneb, iPC, retail or etc?
I used both iDeneb and IPC 10.5.6 with the same issue.
FYI, I use Chun-nan kext to enable the PCMIA

3) Can you tell me about your wired network card?
The wired connection works perfectly, I am using Intel82566MM.kext and I only had to edit its info file to match the right version for IOPCIFamily which changed after loading chun-nan's fix
<key>com.apple.iokit.IOPCIFamily</key>
<string>2.4</string>

Hope you find my issue :D
thanks a lot

Hi danillll,

Your card is not detected as a "network" card. It just detected as "cardbus" adapter. It mean OS X don't know what function your card have. I'm honestly don't know why. According to my search, your card should be working.

Can you list the packages that you select during installation? Did you select driver for wireless during installation? It is best not to select any driver for wireless (and wired) during installation. One more thing, your network (wired) card is not listed in your ioreg. Just like there is no network card installed/detected which explain why this message appear in your log file:-

I think you maybe need to reinstall your OS X. :rolleyes:

kizwan,

Thanks for looking into this.
When I collected the system.log, I didn't have my ethernet card activated yet and this is the reason you saw the error.

For the packages, I use vanila kernel with only mouse/keyboard patch fix as well as power mgmt to display the battery.
I didn't install any wireless or network drivers.

I installed IPC and IDneb 3 times now :D , but

Hi danillll,

For power management, which selection did you chose? Can you try reinstall iPC again? :( In addition to what you usually select during install, also select AppleSMBIOS patch (AppleSMBIOSEFI or SMBIOSResolver). For power management, just select AppleACPIBatteryManager by Chun-Nan.

Kizwan,

I will try it tonight right after work.
I haven't tried the AppleSMBIOS patch so maybe it will help and I will also make sure to use Chun-Nan BatteryManager.

It's a newbie question, but wht is the AppleSMBIOS for?

Thanks

Patched version of AppleSMBIOS is for proper hardware detection. ;) Some application do some checking before launch, like model of the PC. For example, if it found out that the model of the PC is not "Mac", it may crash. The objective is to make your PC identified like original Mac.

Kizwan,

Thanks for your help in last 2 days. I tried a new install with your suggestions but still not working, same as before, the card is identified but not being assigned to the driver. I kinda gave up on this, I guess I will wait on my friend to let me borrow his dell d620 which seems to be 99% fully functional.

Thanks again

danillll,

FYI, I have Linksys Wireless-G WPC54G ver. 3 (PCMCIA) (broadcom - device id 4318) & it is working on my Acer Aspire 3680 with iPC 10.5.6. I also have DW 1395 (internal - mini-pcie card) (dell wireless - broadcom - device id 4315) in other laptop. If you're going to buy one try find either this two card. For the linksys WPC54G, remember that you need to find exactly "ver. 3" because any other version may have different chipset which may not compatible at all.

Good luck. :)

Kizwan,

do you mind if you post your system.log and ioreg from the laptop with pcmcia, I just want to see how it identifies the card and compare.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1100, and I wanted to test this but I am having kernel panics. Anyway to use your current AHCI driver with this, once I do the dmesg | grep pc, it messes that stuff up, or I think it is the AHCI driver no longer working. I did boot the iatkos install and chose the AHCI driver individually for install and it still has a kernel panic. Help. Please. ;)

I have Sierra 875 a UMTS 3G PC Card. the device is working for the first time and can connect to the internet only once after I install IOPCMCIAFamily.KEXT and PCI Utils using OSX86Tools. but the problem is when I reboot the system, the device stop working but the system still recognize it as a PCMCIA connected with the lid still on, but the Watcher didn't recognize the card anymore, sierra modem use to connect to the net using their application called Watcher/3G Watcher. a .pkg is including a driver for it's modem. I'am using OSX86 10.5.6 Retail and NEC PCMCIA card reader.

does anyone have the same problem as I am? I really need to make this device to operate. any clue for this problem? should I post dmesg, LSPCI and information from system profiler?
