  1. Hi, I have been trying for a very long time now to get wireless working on this Compaq CQ60 notebook. I have searched google for ath9k (Atheros) kext to install on my system but only find a linux version instead of os x kext. Is there a kext for this atheros chip or does anyone have a similar notebook they have made work with another solution? I would appreciate any help, advice or turn in the right direction. I have posted in other forums only to be ignored on this one question. The notebook works great with 10.6.8 snow leopard and wireless is the only non functioning piece. I also tried a USB Netgear Wireless adapter (Wireless N150) but the system did not detect it. I had hoped that since USB devices are detected, that it would detect it but it didn't work either. Is there a wireless USB device that is a solution, and maybe this particular one just did not work? This is the info I have in system profiler: airport utility: 5.5.3 (553.20) IO80211 family: 3.2 (320.1) In the network tab in system profiler the only active services are ethernet but no wireless. If there's any other info that I should supply please let me know and I will. Thanks!
