In Topic: [HowTo] Broadcom wireless cards in 10.4.3

09 May 2007 - 11:10 PM

Hi, i tried your instructions and followed them bit for bit untill the first reboot. Now i get stuck in a never ending boot screen (white with apple) and I cant boot into OSX. Any suggestions?


I might just want to buy a different wireless card.

can anybody tell me where to get an Atheros wireless card that will fit in my socket?
it should look like this one (see pic)

i have a strange issue with a wireless card in my laptop. it thinks that it is ethernet.

when i went through the setup on a fresh installation, it knew it was a wireless card, and i was able to pic up signal and connect, but when i launch osx it does not allow me to configure the airport card, and none of the wireless troubleshoots that i have tried have worked. please help....

i have an odd problem with my wireless configuration.

I am using the Jas 10.4.6 disc

1. When i do a clean install, and it asks me if i want to use a network for something, I am able to succesfully scan for networks, and I am able to connect to them


2. although I am able to connect, once OSX starts it assumes i am on a wired ethernet network. if i reboot it will not connect to the net.

3. I have an HP Pavilion dv6000. I think the wireless card is a broadcom. There is a chip on the card that sais broadcom, but idk if thats the manufacturer of the whole chip.

4. I have tried the Atheros method, the Broadcom card method, and the broadcom chipset method and i have a few problems.

*the atheros method kernal cannot be loaded.

*in either broadcom method, when I am supposed to edit THE .PLIST file, the file is completely blank.

any ideas on how to fix this?
