  1. Before rebranding- device id's- 168:1c sub id's: 103c:137a After rebrand- device id's- 168:1c sub id's- 106b:4e And i just encountered a new problem. On Ubuntu, i can no longer change the id's. When i change the sub id's to 106b:87 (or 106:0087 they are theoretically the same) in the EEPROM it only updates the EEPROM, but when i do: lspci -vvnn it gives me the same id's as before, which would be 106b:4e

    Rebranding Atheros AR5006EG to a Vanilla Card

    Don't worry, it's not one of those evil cards! BTW eeprom shows the card as a g only card (although the sticker in the card says it is b/g). Thanks in advance
  3. Thanks for your reply! Ionly deleted the bcm4311.kext .... I actually figured out something, thanks to the help of LatinMcg. What appears to be wrong is that the card is rebranded to a brcm subid. The problem now is, what is an apple compatible, atheros chipset, b/g only subsys ID's. I dont know where i can find subsystem ID's, so if you could give me one for my card, or atleast point me to the right direction, that'd be awesome. Thanks in advance, -PumaTechTV
  4. UPDATE 3- I actually figured out something, thanks to the help of LatinMcG. What appears to be wrong is that the card is rebranded to a brcm subid. The problem now is, what is an apple compatible, and compatible with my card, b/g only subsys ID's. I dont know where i can find subsystem ID's, so if you could give me one for my card, or atleast point me to the right direction, that'd be awesome. UPDATE 2- It seems that my previous hypothesis was invalid. I fixed my computer to load the wifi card at startup and it loads it properly on both windows 7 and ubuntu; however when i try to boot it into snow leopard, it desn't even see the card. Please help, im getting desperate. UPDATE- I belive i (partially) found the problem! The hypothesis is that my card isn't starting when my computer is starting. For example, my card should start up, or turn on, or atleast enable wlan, during the BIOS screen; If not, before Snow Leopard starts up. I figured this out when i went on ubuntu. I had to press the wireless button to enable wireless. The new question now is: How do I make my wifi card so start up during the BIOS, or before Snow Leopard starts? Hey guys! I successfully rebranded my card (ar5007) using iHack13 's guide. When I installed 10.6.1, 2, or 3, A kernel panic would occur. I was able to fix these kernel panics, involving the kexts AirPortBrcm4311.kext and AppleTycmeDriver.kext by going into single mode or windows and deleting them from there. The thing is, that after i successfully boot, my airport card is not recognized. My card should work OTB but it doesn't. Not even system profiler can see it! But how can it not see something that is branded ad an Apple AirPort card? the sub id's are 106b:4e and the card is a b/g only card Here is my lspci -vvnn: 02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Atheros Communications Inc.

    Rebranding Atheros AR5006EG to a Vanilla Card

    Rebranding was a success, but os x had a probelm. OS X 10.6.1 HAZARD wont reconginze, or even see, the wifi card. Terminal cant see it, nor can system profiler. The card works fine in windows and ubuntu, so I am wondering why it isn't working here. I can supply any info needed, from ubuntu lspci -vvnn, to os x's terminal commands. I an laso able to take pictures. Somebody please help me! Here is my lspci -vvnn 02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Atheros Communications Inc.
