Atheros AR5418 - ML 10.8.2

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



I have a real airport card and it shows up in lspci as below - In 10.8 the card flatly refuses to be recognised even though it seems the device id is present in AirPortAtheros40.kext.


Has anyone ever managed to get this card going in ML?
