  1. This problem just started happening out of the blue. My wireless card, a TP-Link TL-WN851N, which was working just fine a few days ago is having all sorts of problems now. Any time a device attempts to connect to it while it is sharing my ethernet connection, such as my iPad per se, the signal drops and reconnects very quickly over and over again essentially rendering the signal unusable. My specs are exactly that of the Lifehacker guide (http://lifehacker.com/5351485/how-to-build-a-hackintosh-with-snow-leopard-start-to-finish#hardware) ... the only exception is I'm using onboard ethernet, which works perfect, and instead using my wireless card where the PCI ethernet would normally go. Any suggestions?

    Lifehacker Guide with GA-EP45-UD3P Motherboard

    I'm having the exact same problem with the PCI slots. Only the bottom one is working. In the top PCI slot, the card there, which is a TL-WN851N wireless adapter is seated properly and the proper kext is installed - Mac doesn't detect it. I also tried the network card in the same slot (which is guaranteed working) - Mac doesn't detect it there, only in the bottom slot does it work. I really would like to get this fixed so I can use wireless. Any suggestions? By the way, I'm using the exact build in the Lifehacker guide. The only thing different is I've added a wireless card, the TL-WN851N. I had zero problems with installing Snow Leopard and I'm running 10.6.2.

    [GUIDE] Leopard on an XPS 1330/1530

    I have just about everything working perfectly now except for sleep. Whenever I sleep, the laptop will fall asleep for about 1 second and then it will instantly wake up. What could be causing this?

    [GUIDE] Leopard on an XPS 1330/1530

    I'm still having problems updating. I'm trying to get Chameleon and netkas's boot file set up, but I'm having some problems. In the guide, it says to install Chameleon 1.0.12, but the only version of Chameleon up for download on the link provided is 1.0.11. I installed this and tried to replace the boot file like the guide says, but when this is done it says I don't have sufficient privileges/permissions to do this. Now what?

    I'm stuck on the part of the guide where you update to 10.5.5. The pre/post update files are no longer online! What now?
