  1. Go with an HP, brother. I have an 8470p and literally every hardware component is supported. The only thing one must do is replace the WiFi module. The rest, power management, sleep, sound(AppleHDA -NOT- voodoo), accelerated graphics, trackpad(with 2-finger & 3-finger), bluetooth, firewire, usb, ethernet--it all works perfectly
  2. Lol..... if you don't know what "native" means, why would you use the term at all?
  3. Ok so the short answer is, the Netgear WN311B is NOT compatible with OS X. I guess there's a major difference in what people define as "working", as some peasant at some point in the past saw an Airport logo and decided to wiki declare the card as "supported". I call BS. The best this card can do is operate as a third party card. It doesn't drop frequently or have some of the other issues described @ third party cards, but it is what it is. Any attempt to rebrand this card will result in huge network lags, your MCS index will never be higher than 3. Also, with windows this card will immediately work @ 270mbps maxrate, with os x you will never see a maxrate higher than 130, and if you've rebranded, you won't even reach 10% of that. Sold the piece of {censored} as a misflashed semi-working card on craigslist for $20; invested $10 more and picked up a Rosewill N900PCE which is ACTUALLY SUPPORTED. Not peasant support, legit support; as in gives same speed in OS X as other OS's. Has an AR9380 and is recognized as Airport Extreme out of the box. Once again, do not buy a Netgear WN311B (14e4,4329) for your hackintosh unless all you want is very very basic airport. Screw the misinformation regarding the WN311B being a "supported device" Only change I made was for cosmetics in the dsdt, and is non-necessary, I just wanted to see the card in System Profiler; added under/within device PEX0, as the card is PCI-E Device (ARPT) { Name (_ADR, Zero) Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) {Store (Package () {"built-in", Buffer (0x02){0x00}, "device_type", Buffer (){"AirPort"}, "AAPL,slot-name", Buffer () {"PCI"}, "model", Buffer (){"Rosewill N900PCE (Atheros AR9380)"} }, Local0) DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0)) Return (Local0) }
  4. I changed my ppid to 0x432a and now I can't get an $SSB_SPROM, b43 doesn't do anything anymore I can't change the device ID back. How can I force the operation? Now I have no wireless at all...
  5. I'm having the same problem with this card, no matter what IDs I choose the Wifi is terribly unstable and always disconnects after a few minutes. I've tried changing slots already. The original IDs for this card are: Subsystem Product ID = 0x7D00 Subsystem Vendor ID = 0x1385 PCI Product ID = 0x4329 No matter what, I can't get speeds higher than 130, in Windows it's 270 Third party mode works so much more reliable compared to airport, just no 300...
  6. I have a Netgear WN311B (0x4329) that I have rebranded to Airport Extreme. With the third party mode, the best I can get out of the card is 130TX, but I know this card supports 5ghz dual band, and router does too. But, after rebranding to Airport Extreme, stability gets infinitely worst, the MCS falls to 1-3, and TX 0-40. With third party mode these values are up to 15 MCS (max) and 130 TX. I've tried a couple different values for the subvendor: 0x0087, 0x008D, 0x0093, 0x008B, 0x008C and they're all laggy and unstable. Also no 5ghz. What are the right values for this card?

    Can someone explain how the formula for manually adding sensor info works? My memory is showing 0.096, when it should be 2.096. I'm looking at other keys like Main 5V for my board that have +630 gain, but the highest I can make it go is 1.999 and then it resets back to 0.000 :\ ( Vref - Vraw ) / Vraw (2.096 - 0.096) / 0.096 2 / 0.096 20.83 So I put 2083 in gain for memory, and still get 0.096, I think there's a bug, no matter how you work out the math it won't show a reading higher than 1.999
