This works so much better than my cobbled together install! I tried upgrading to 10.6.2 and everything works fine except sleep. Can I fix this or should I just stick with a previous version if I want sleep functionality? Any input would be appreciated.

In Topic: Rebranding Broadcom based 802.11b/g/n cards.

I have a BCM94321 that I rebranded using this technique. It shows up as airport extreme, but I can only squeeze wireless B speeds out of it (10Mb/s). I tried the 0x0087 and 0x008B values and they both show up in network utility as apple airport 130Mb/s ABGN connection, but they just can't even get G level speeds. Windows gets connected fine 216Mb/s running smoothly. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Switched the antennas. Fixed!

In Topic: Can't get BCM94321MC to work

Hi! I just bought a BCM94321 off ebay. OOB it showed up as third party wireless and I got on wireless b speed out of it. btw it's a mini PCIe card with a dev id of 4328. so i tried the broadcom enabler sript and managed to get g speed out of it. then I tried rebranding the card in linux. it now shows up as AirPort Extreme (0x14E4, 0x87). network utility reports it as an ABGN card with 130Mb/s connection, BUT in practice it's back down to roughly 8Mb/s. Argh! I should be getting N class speeds! ideas anyone?

In Topic: SATA Optical Drive Read/Write Speeds Slow

17 November 2009 - 06:52 AM

I have installed snow leopard 10.6.2 (by following the guide on lifehacker) on a Gigabyte EP43-DS3l motherboard and everything is running great... except for the DVD drive, a Pioneer DVR-216D. SATA is set to AHCI, and while the hard drives are clearly operating at full speed, the DVD drive won't push past a 1x read/write speed. I have switched the SATA ports around, and even swapped in a Sony Optiarc but the results do not change. I tried the newest ICH10 kext from this forum but it had no effect. 10.5.8 didn't have this issue for me. Could someone please offer me some advice? It would be much appreciated! :)

Solved! Had to set the SATA port to native mode.
