Linksys WMP300N EU / Atheros 5416 PCI Wifi Card

26 February 2009 - 11:04 PM

Guys,

just to let you know and for future reference to anyone trying to install a Linksys WMP300N, EU version based on the Atheros 5416 chipset (recognised as AirPort Extreme, 0x168c, 0x61).

This PCI card works out of the box in Leopard 10.5.6 (retail vanilla install) as long as you delete any DSDT.aml file you may have in your installation (maybe generated at the time when we all thought it was needed). Of course reboot after deleting.

Symptoms in case you DO have a dsdt.aml: the card will be recognised, but under network preferences it will NOT be possible to turn it on.

NOTE: I can't test N functionality, but G "speed" appears to work fine

I'm writing this as I couldn't find clear directions on this issue and I wasted an hour working things out.

peace
MM
