I also have this god-forsaken wireless chipset, lol, on my Sony Vaio lappy that I have Jas 10.4.6 running on. I have been trying for the past couple days to get wireless working with no success. Here's what I have done: I got the 10.4.5 update from apple, and used Pacifist to extract the IO80211Family.kext. I then replaced the one from 10.4.6, and made sure that the AirPortAtheros5424.kext within the contents/plugins of IO80211 was all in order. Permissions fixed, chown -R root:wheel on my extensions directory All set. I reboot the machine, and it seems I have problems. Under system profiler / extensions, AirPortAtheros5424 shows up as loaded, but has two unsatisfied dependencies because apparently "no valid version" or something. IONetworking, and IO80211Family itself. I've followed this thread: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=33089 But, alas, it has led me do a dead end. I will try the kext from the airport extrame 2007 update, and if that doesn't work, I'll try 10.4.7, as my 10.4.8 dvd won't boot into setup (empty blue screen). Still tinkering, I'll keep you posted.
