Anybody have any ideas? Lovely experience in the O/S, but no wireless, bluetooth or audio - yet!

10.4.3 8f1111 (ADP) Patched the usual way
Intel Core Duo processor T2300/1.66ghz
Intel 945GM Express Chipset Worked fine from first boot
Integrated Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG network connection (dual-band tri-mode 802.11a/b/g) Not working
Intel High-Definition audio FIXED - see post below


There are two souls on offer in exchange for any help or pointers, thanks a lot in advance.

And iTunes is 'expired' apparently but we care less about that for the moment.

-------------------------
Edit: Audio Fixed!!
-------------------------

Ok everybody, awesome news: got audio working wonderfully. Well, wonderful in that it works (we don't seem to have any input yet, but volume control on the menu bar - preference pane doesn't work either) with output. I bet you wanna know how we did it eh? Well this is all thanks to pion at osx86 (his original post is here: http://www.win2osx.n...p?t=233&page=15 )

I've also included the file included with the post on that forum.

945G's Realtek ALC882 instructions for 10.4.3 (8f1111)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

To get 2- channel sound you have to move AppleHDA.kext out of the Extensions Folder and replace the AzaliaAudio with this one, repair permissions and enable sound in the bios.


Installation instructions
----------------------

Download the file
unzip the file to your desktop
open terminal
do the following:

sudo -s
enter your password
cp -r /system/library/extensions/AppleHDA.kext /system/library/extensions.disabled
cp -R /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAzaliaAudio.kext /System/Library/Extensions.disabled
cp -R /Users/YOUR USER NAME HERE/Desktop/AppleAzaliaAudio.kext /System/Library/Extensions/
chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/AppleAzaliaAudio.kext
kextcache -k /System/Library/Extensions/

then you're done!!!
reboot system

Good luck everyone, let us know how you get on and next step: WIRELESS! Wohoo. Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG here...

Actually our ethernet is working fine. Just no wifi. Think it may be something to do with everything being on the HD intel bus... but who knows what that means.

I have a travelmate but without dual core intel processor and still using Intel 915 motherboard. It works well (and still does) even without SSE3. It supports QE and CI (although even after reading it on Apple's site, I don't know what's the point of both except for the eye candy).

I just got my 4202 last night and the first thing I did after getting rid of all the XP {censored} on it was install 10.4.3, it runs beautifully, definitely beyond my expectations, but alas just like above, no wifi or sound. It see's my broadcom NIC but doesn't seem to get an address. I'm looking forward to getting some network access though, this is a great laptop so far.

assuming there is no way to get your current hardware working:

an easy way to fix the sound problem is to get a compatible usb sound card. look on the wiki to see what works.

regarding wifi, look for mini pci or usb alternatives.

Onboard broadcom 10/100/1000 ethernet(V: 0x14E4h D: 0x170Ch)

Worked from the start..

One thing I did notice, was that my usb apple keyboard would'nt work, yet osx clearly see's my usb. External drives cant be seen either...

Even though there are alternative ways around these hiccups, I still want/need to get the stock h/w working nice.
Anyway good buzz already, lets keep it up! :(
Many thanks.
