  1. Atheros Network Drivers

    I have followed this:Snow Leopard 2 PC and also this Tutorial: Osx86 Snow Leopard 10A261 via PCIEFI9 but mainly the first site as it is for 10A380 and now updated for 10A394. I have deleted OSInstall.mpkg and replaced with attached one (it is for 10A380). I have used a usb stick of 8 GB to restore snow leopard install dvd so I have not made a new partition. I have also used an external USB HDD with leopard 10.5.7 installed from which I have installed snow leopard to my laptop hdd. Try and see how it works for you. ask if you have any troubles maybe I can help. This worked for Aspire 5735Z but it didn't work for Compaq c754 (it remains stacked at boot). I'll try with that new kernel for 10A394 and mybe it'll also work for compaq. Good luck OSInstall_mpkg.zip
  2. Atheros Network Drivers

    Try install Snow Leopard. It has driver for Atheros AR5B91 168c 002a (and many others). I've installed 10A380 updated to 10A394 and it's working very well. AR5B91 it's working as AirPort. (Aspire 5735Z)
  3. Best distro for Acer Aspire 5735Z?

    My Aspire 5735Z is running Snow Leopard (10A394) and the most interesting thing is that Snow Leopard has driver for Atheros AR5B91 which works perfectly as Airport. So wireless is working. For graphics I have 1366x768 with grub2 and I closely follow this tread: GMAX4500 Ethernet-is not working Sound - VoodooHDA, mic is not working (I'm using Creative Xmod) @marcel.chirila Salutare
