mercurysquad is also working on intel drivers - check it here:
dong as disassembled IO80211 - search for source code of IO80211Controller , IO80211Interface here
pjmiller435 also works on intel cards: http://www.insanelym...howtopic=164237
get iwi's latest files from
Please read the FAQ here http://code.google.c...darwin/wiki/FAQ
check for development news in this tread
mac os x 10.5 support exists for iwi2100, iwi2200 , iwi3945 and iwi4965
at this time only iwi2100 and iwi2200 driver works - for mac os x 10.4 and 10.5
to learn how to install and test latest version of iwi drivers read
check last release source code in this thread. the drivers need code for associating to networks
the drivers aren't stable - to see how it works open console.app -> system.log
if you get errors in system.log like timeouts,fw errors,rf kill,etc try a few reboots
after install goto system preferences -> networks and check if the iwi device is there (en1,etc)
this is important if you use kextload to load the driver
to test the card it must be powered on - use the wirless switch or reboot from windows with the card powered on.
match your log against the linux log to check if the driver is working - compare with attached linux logs
to catch kernel panics boot with flag -v -debug=0x100
To fix PCI pci bus detection, use the files from: http://forum.insanel...o...036&st=500# - this avoids issues of the card appearing switched off. (thanks asstastic)
you can join the project and help writting code.
i don't have a magic solution to make the drivers work - help by writing some lines of code if you can.
post new releases/source code here so we can discuss it.
get ready to ignore some people comments - we can't please everybody
thanks for helping
