    Version 2.3.2


    Key Features of the Driver Supports Qualcomm Atheros AR816x, AR817x, Killer E220x, Killer E2400 and Killer E2500. Support for multisegment packets relieving the network stack of unnecessary copy operations when assembling packets for transmission. No-copy receive and transmit. Only small packets are copied on reception because creating a copy is more efficient than allocating a new buffer. TCP, UDP and IPv4 checksum offload (receive and transmit). Support for TCP/IPv6 and UDP/IPv6 checksum offload. Makes use of the chip's TCP Segmentation Offload (TSO) feature with IPv4 and IPv6 in order to reduce CPU load while sending large amounts of data. Fully optimized for Mountain Lion, Mavericks and Yosemite (64bit architecture) but should work with Lion (only 64bit) too, provided you build from source with the 10.7 SDK. Wake on LAN support. VLAN support used to be broken in older versions but is working since version 2.3.2. The driver is published under GPLv2.
  2. Hello. I have system unit Dell Vostro 3267 (i5-6400, Skylake). Information in signature. In this system block module installed Atheros AR9565 802.11 b/g/n Wireless Network Adapter, which, as I understand it, combines Wi-Fi - Atheros AR9565 and Bluetooth Qualcomm QCA9565. I managed to get working Wifi with kext from chunnann. https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/312045-atheros-wireless-driver-os-x-101112-for-unsupported-cards/?page=17&tab=comments#comment-2509900 https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/328426-qualcomm-atheros-ar9565-wireless-for-os-x-108-1014/ Bluetooth works only if you first boot into Windows and then reboot into macOS from it. At the same time, you need to install drivers for bluetooth in Windows from the official Dell website, because the original drivers that Windows downloaded and installed itself - did not allow the bluetooth module to work even in Windows. In bluetooth settings, the power button was inactive and there was an eternal search for devices (if macOS was loaded immediately after the PC started). Enable button disable I cured just by adding the folder /kexts/Other kext BrcmBluetoothInjector by writing inside it in the Info.the plist file corresponds to the VendorID and ProductID of my bluetooth (which are displayed in the system report). BrcmBluetoothInjector_Mod.kext.zip I am disappointed that Windows is able to automatically download the firmware to the bluetooth module during the download, and Hackintosh macOS has not yet done such a kext. In the search for solutions to the problem I came across here are the options for the text: IOath3kfrmw (OS-X-Atheros-3k-Firmware) https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-atheros-3k-firmware/downloads/ https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Atheros-3k-Firmware OS-X-BrcmPatchRAM https://github.com/the-darkvoid/BrcmPatchRAM https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-BrcmPatchRAM https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/os-x-brcmpatchram/downloads/ https://bitbucket.org/anonymous_writer/os-x-brcmpatchram-catalina/downloads/ https://github.com/headkaze/OS-X-BrcmPatchRAM BTFirmwareUploader (as I understand it, this is an improved IOath3kfrmwr) https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/2925-bluetooth-firmware-uploader/ And here's a way - to use a virtual machine to the OS from it to download the firmware to the bluetooth module https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/10127-updated-nov-2017-fix-btfirmwareuploader-in-macos-high-sierra/ Unfortunately, not one of these options did not help me to ensure that bluetooth worked when "cold" start the PC in macOS. 1. I started to read more about kexts. In texte BrcmPatchRAM says that it is possible to add support for their bluetooth module in this kext. I downloaded the drivers for my bluetooth from the official site and extracted from .exe installer driver files themselves (This is easily done using 7-zip in Windows or using Keka in macOS). There were more files .dfu than others. As I found out .dfu files are compiled firmware files that the driver loads into the bluetooth module. In the instructions to BrcmPatchRAM States only .hex firmware files for Broadcom. I started looking for information on the Internet and found out that .hex files are the original "text" of the firmware as well .dfu is compiled .hex files. I immediately started looking for converters/decompilers/disassemblers from .in dfu .hex, but found only what's out .hex does .dfu file: https://github.com/pjsg/hex2dfu https://github.com/plietar/dfuse-tool https://github.com/kuro68k/ihex2dfu https://github.com/vpelletier/python-dfu As well as console utilities "dfu-tool" and "dfu-util" in Linux. I found out that dfu-util can be installed in macOS using Homebrew or use this option (it differs in functionality) https://github.com/the-darkvoid/dfu-util-osx 2. I also learned that .dfu files are used in macOS /System/Library/Extensions/IOBluetoothFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/IOBluetoothUSBDFU.kext/Contents/Resources I think we should try to replace all of them on that file that Windows loads the bluetooth module (I think if you try to do so, you need to make several copies of this file and rename it to the original ones .dfu files to be deleted). 3. As is the idea is just mine .dfu file rename to file .zhx and add it to the kext OS-X-BrcmPatchRAM (in BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext). But there is a problem - first, I don't know which one .dfu files are downloaded to my bluetooth, maybe even a few, because there are 3 files > 40 KB IN size and a lot of files ~ 2 KB in size. 4. In "dfu-tool" and "dfu-util" I saw commands that extract firmware from the device. Maybe it will be possible to boot into Linux and if bluetooth starts working there, then try to extract the firmware from bluetooth with these utilities, and then add this firmware to kexts somehow. 5. In the file BTFirmwareUploader.kex/Contents/MacOS/BTFirmwareUploader inside already have a list of firmwares, but they are in .hex format. Maybe there's a way to replace them with the contents .dfu file? I will continue to describe the ideas and results of the experiments. If you have any ideas or you can help to solve this problem, do not hesitate to write. Screenshots: Links to download drivers:

    Mojave laptop can't sleep / wifi issue

    Hello guys! I'm using a Samsung ativ book 2 np270e5g-xd1br, with i5-3230m/HM75, and everything is working fine, except by sleeping and wifi connection (the Hackintosh internet speed is about 10% of the windows/Linux, and sometimes It downs randomly). I've tried a lot of tutorials but nothing solved my problem. Hope you guys could help me obs: I also figured that if I left the laptop for some minutes, It sometimes reboot. Send me MacBook-Pro.zip

  9. Hi, I have an Atheros AR5B195 wifi card that actually works pretty good on Yosemite after a proper DSDT patch. The problem now is that the card can't seem to discover any network when the computer wakes from sleep. I have to restart the computer before the card can discover networks again. I used a DSDT patch to make it work. I have also tried some injectors found here on this forum and OSXLatitude but they did not fix this issue. Can someone please help? Thanks!
  10. Hello bright community! I have just got myself a WiFi card with Atheros AR3980 chipset (devID 168c,30 - Sub Ven 106b Sub Dev 009a), which I thought was supposed to work out of the box(?), as it's the same that Apple uses natively (checked the info.plist in AirportAtheros40.kext)(?) I plugged in the card, restarted, then tried to set it up in System Pref under Network by adding the device with the "+" but WIFI doesn't show up, only my 2x ethernet ports and bluetooth. In system profiler under PCI I just see this: pci168c,30: Type: Other Network Controller Driver Installed: No MSI: No Bus: PCI Slot: PCI Slot 7 Vendor ID: 0x168c Device ID: 0x0030 Subsystem Vendor ID: 0x106b Subsystem ID: 0x009a Revision ID: 0x0001 Link Width: x1 Link Speed: 2.5 GT/s When using Kextstat in Terminal it tells me that the corresponding kexts are loaded: 113 1 0xffffff7f82998000 0xe6000 0xe6000 com.apple.iokit.IO80211Family (1200.12.2) A08E69B1-9559-358F-A363-9083B344DA10 <112 50 22 8 7 6 5 4 3 1> 114 0 0xffffff7f82a7e000 0x14c000 0x14c000 com.apple.driver.AirPort.Atheros40 (700.74.5) 448A2423-55B3-3033-BE5F-CB19CB92D35E <113 50 12 7 5 4 3 1> In IOReg it shows to be connected under an odd tree/device/address - not the usual I have seen (RP0x etc) I have attached the IOReg file below. Do I need to edit my dsdt to make this work? I have attached my current DSDT as well. Oh, turning on dsdt mask for Lan and Wifi in clover also didn't work. Hitting a brick wall here. Thanks a lot for all your helpful comments and suggestions already! Atheros Issue IORegistry.zip DSDT.aml.zip

  13. Version


    Open source iats Atheros L1 network adapter driver compiled for Mavericks. Source taken from the project on Google Code (svn/sl/atl1) and not modified, except to change the build target to OS X 10.9. I've tested it for weeks on my P5L-MX with 10.9.3 through 10.9.5 and it seems to work fine so far. Should work for various other boards, particularly by ASUS. Installation: works well in an EFI system partition and should also work fine in /Extra. Compiled in Xcode 6.0.1.
