In Topic: Atheros AR5005(G)

08 April 2007 - 02:40 PM

Okay,one step further. When I get to the kextload of ArportAtheros5424.kext , I find that I'm "missing dependencies".

Would it make sense to try a newer IO80211Family.kext than from version 10.4.5? JaS 10.4.8's didn't work obviously, or I wouldn't have tried going through the above process in the first place. The hardes part of all of this is with no Internet access, I need to keep booting back into XP to get necessary files as I find I need them (my wired Ethernet is 3Com 3C920, and I don't have that up and working at this point either).

My Wifi card is a generic (Askey WLL4070) using the Atheros AR5006XS chip...any reports of folks getting that one working?

Thanks guys for taking the time to help out someone whose under-the-hood knowledge of OS X isn't as good as he'd like.

EDIT: I also tried Thang Bo's suggestions, using the 10.4.8 kext files (I have kept backups). This has not helped either. Neither network interface shows up in System Preferences>Network.


I said my wireless card is Atheros AR5005G chipset

Try this:
Delete all Network Port in System Preferences>Network
download the latest AirPort from Apple
(link: http://supportdownlo...ate2007002.dmg)
Install and restart.
Then aplly my previous suggestion:
1. Change IONameMatch Key
2. Goto Terminal:
sudo -schown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AirPortAtheros5424.kextchmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AirPortAtheros5424.kexttouch /System/Library/Extensionsshutdown -r now

If it still not work. I have no idea :tomato:

My wireless card is AR5005G. As instruction at page 1, use IO80211Family kext 10.4.5 . It's OK. But when you upgrade IO80211Family kext to the latest from Apple, system can find your wireless card.

How to use the latest update without problem with AR5005G card ???

Download the latest IO80211Family kext from Apple and install it. Then restart and I found that system can find your wireless card.
Go to : /System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AirPortAtheros5424.kext/Contents/
and edit Info.plist file

Find
<key>IONameMatch</key>
and change it to : (delete the old value)
<array>
<string>pci106b,0086</string>
<string>pci106b,1c</string>
<string>pci168c,1c</string>
<string>pci168c,1014</string>
<string>pci168c,13</string>
<string>pci168c,14</string>
<string>pci168c,15</string>
<string>pci168c,16</string>
<string>pci168c,17</string>
<string>pci168c,18</string>
<string>pci168c,19</string>
<string>pci168c,1a</string>
<string>pci168c,1b</string>
<string>pci168c,1c</string>
<string>pci168c,52</string>
<string>pci168c,55</string>
<string>pci168c,57</string>
<string>pci168c,58</string>
<string>pci168c,58a</string>
<string>pci168c,86</string>
<string>pci168c,87</string>
</array>

Go to terminal

sudo -schown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AirPortAtheros5424.kext chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AirPortAtheros5424.kext touch /System/Library/Extensionsshutdown -r now

I think it work for your Atheros wireless card, and some AR500x card.

My god, I have solved the problem :thumbsup_anim: . The problem is : have 2 AppleRTL8139Ethernet.kext in two difference location, the 1st locate in /System/Library/Extensions/ and the 2nd one locate in /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/Plugins/
I have just delete the 2nd one but there's still the 1st one. I dont know why there're 2 of the same kext in 2 difference location.

I found this problem when I check system infomation (Apple>About this MAC>More Info>Software>Extensions). It's so lucky to me :thumbsup_anim:

And now, I want to say thanks to all of you, especially orByte, the writer of this driver (Perfect driver :star_smile: :star_smile: :star_smile: :star_smile: :star_smile: ).
