Hey I have a Netgear wirelss usb adaptor. When I looked up the chipset it said Atheros. I have been looking on this forum over the past 2 days trying to solve problems without asking for help. I cannot solve what to do to get wirless to work. I assume I need to trick the mac into thinking this usb adaptor is a airport wirless mac adaptor. I read somewhere to load IO80211 family, will this work with my adaptor. I have been using the Iatkos V7 disc so far and updating drivers from that. I have since downloaded osx86 tools but not tried that. Would really appreciate some help.

Getting this to work is tricky and not 100% you would be better off with linksys WUSB600N I have been struggling to make Atheros work for months and as I said it works but not all the time the IO80211Family.kext is what you need and try the Atherosfix.kext google and you will find them and good luck !

I recently have installed snow leopard universal 10.6.2 on my laptop
It detects my wireless card as an airport and request security key for WPA2 personal.
Connection quality is excellent and antenna sign is full.
Although I can enter to router setting by entering 192.168.1.1 in browser, no net connection is available!!
There is no problem in Win 7 and wireless internet is perfect.
I checked proxy setting and then I tried to disable firewall but no internet connection.
Even with open security setting no net is available.
My wireless AP is D-link 2640U and wireless card on my laptop is AR5B91

I wonder if there is any chance to get Atheros Chip-Based Cards to work, since there is a new version of Orangewares universal-driver (3.2)
I cannot load it, it says something like 31com_orangeware_iokit_OMI_80211g is not copatible bla bla bla..
Btw: I get the same error, when trying to load 10.4.4 Network Drivers in 10.4.3 (Broadcom for example).
Have you found a fix yet, mate? Thanks
I have followed this:Snow Leopard 2 PC and also this Tutorial: Osx86 Snow Leopard 10A261 via PCIEFI9 but mainly the first site as it is for 10A380 and now updated for 10A394.
I have deleted OSInstall.mpkg and replaced with attached one (it is for 10A380).
I have used a usb stick of 8 GB to restore snow leopard install dvd so I have not made a new partition. I have also used an external USB HDD with leopard 10.5.7 installed from which I have installed snow leopard to my laptop hdd.
Try and see how it works for you. ask if you have any troubles maybe I can help.
This worked for Aspire 5735Z but it didn't work for Compaq c754 (it remains stacked at boot). I'll try with that new kernel for 10A394 and mybe it'll also work for compaq.

Under 10.5.x, 10.6 and 10.6.1 this card works fine, but after update to 10.6.2 and after to 10.6.4 card not working and no kext in System_Profiler. With some kext's it show in System_Profiler that kext work and it show in system, but it can't create or find wireless networks.
Someone have ideas?

Sparky, how did your linksys WUSB600N hold up, problems with it too?

I have an Aspire One Pro 531h which has Atheros Wired and Wireless network cards.
I installed iatkOs5 and got lots of stuff working including sound, but no network.
Now I've moved on to try iAtkOs S3 V2. This one at first glance seems great. The screen resolution works out of the box, as does the trackpad. I had to install an Atom or ipooz kernel to stop it auto-rebooting though.
However, no sound and not even any sign of a network.
I tweaked a PCI-1 setting in the install and now I see the both Ethernet cards in the PCI Cards section of System Profiler.
However, they say "No Driver Installed". I've looked all over these and other forums but most of the answers seem to be talking about older versions of MacOs. This one comes up at 10.6.3
In the Ethernet Cards section of System Profiler I have nothing, just details in the PCI Cards section.
Audio has says its got an output device of Speakers(CD) whatever that means, but nothings coming out of the speakers.
If anyone has ANY suggestions about what to try next, please let me know. Of course, I installed this thing just so I can write code in xCode for the iPhone which should work, but it would be very nice to have any kind of network and sound. ;-) As for other bells and whistles I don't care.

Some on here and other places on the web i've seen saying they have got it working. I have tried the kext mentioned above from kexts.com and also other kexts i've downloaded where i've entered the devid etc. However it still doesn't work.
The card is recognised as an airport card however it just doesn't find any networks when you scan.
Can anyone who has this card working please give step by step instructions on how you got it working?
