I am very interested in the development of these drivers, and would greatly appreciate a blog on this!

got a laptop to work on the drivers:

it's a hp dv6700

thanks everyone for wainting

it comes with a broadcom card

i have test it with a 3945 and 4965 card

4965 gives 104 error - no boot

3945 boots into vista but doesn't get recognized

i remember some of you having this problem with older iwi3945 driver versions

i think this is caused by the onboard bluetooth module

in teory intel wireless drivers are expected to have integradet bluetooth

i haven't install mac os x (nvidia ata problem to fix first)

some of you have patched the bios

maybe someone can help me on this - anyone?

this hp as a amd turion 64 x2

i'll try do find why the card isn't recognized (in linux, winxp, mac os)

mercurysquad,
you're doing a great job
hope others follow this example

we'll talk about the code when you finish :)

I think it's not because of integrated bluetooth (you sure it has that?), but because bluetooth and WiFi both operate in the 2.4 GHz range causing interference sometimes. In general it shouldn't be a problem as long as the driver enables "bluetooth co-existence" in the firmware. This is what I understood from looking at the BSD drivers..

I suppose he does need help, rwmanos.

And it's funny, two big developers working on the drivers jut now! After I replaced my 4965 with Broadcom 4311 card. I waited a year, where have you guys been? ;)

Good to see someone is working on this "unsupported drivers" but is someone will working on the 4965?
If i understand good the making of driver of 4965 will take the same time as the making of 3945?

So mercurysquad do you think you will do it?

finally installed mac os x
the computer as a switch for turning bluetooth AND wireless card on/off
tested both ways with 3945 card and it doesn't get detect

if anyone can help on patching the bios - here's the link
http://h10025.www1.h...product=3667489

this is a hp dv6730ep with a amd turion

the bios defaults to allow 3945 and broadcom cards
3945 also doesn't work on vista
i'll test this in xp and linux

if anyone as a dv67000 - please post other drivers links. i'm looking for video,sound,etc

after some reading i found out hp6700 support 3 cards: broadcom, intel and atheros
looks like intel cards only work in intel processor
i have a amd processor...
can someone confirm that intel 3945/4965 works with a amd processor?

Ok People..

1) Jalavoui said tha hpdv6*** bios is locked so you can't change minipci wireless adaptor.(that's why he needs a bios hack)without a bios hack intel3945 or 4965 won't work at all (either on vista,mac,linux,etc.)

2)Jalavoui don't work on the drivers yet because he don't have the ability to test them without working hardware Voodoo labs works on the driver (I think not yet on 3945 and 4965)

just read the topic. And don't ask when are they going to be released or if they work.They are not stable yet

Well maybe it's time to lock this thread yet again, but as Jalavoui appears to be active again we'll leave it open for now. Please keep this topic for discussion of development of the iwidarwin driver and nothing else. Hijacking the topic with other projects only serves to increase confusion.
