After weeks of sharing my macbooks ethernet connection to my P55M-UD4 while waiting for parts, I have finally made my own airport card using relatively cheap parts from ebay. It's a no-compromise solution and I hope it helps anyone looking for affordable (<$50) and zero-configuration setup. I would encourage anyone who employs this method to comment on my blog post (and also help update the HCL wiki) with the exact mini pci-e card, adapter, and compatibility results. How To: Build your own "Real" Airport Card for your hackintosh I took a lot of pictures and hope that if any of you are wondering how well this actually works, it does and really well! This opens up a lot of possibilities considering the vast number of cards floating around that might work.
matix replied to treeml's topic in OSx86 10.6 (Snow Leopard)have this problem core i5 p55m ud4 dlink 552 - atheros fix causes kp (at desktop) and after first occurence, cant even get past verbose mode. I only tried this in 64 bit, and had to reformat to recover my system. Has anyone figured this one out yet?
