  3. 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!
  4. 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
  5. Hi, I have macOS Sierra 10.12 running on my Acer Aspire V5-573G notebook right now. Everything is fine apart from the wireless. Currently, I have access to the following network cards: 1. Dell DW 1530 - Broadcom 43228HM4L 2. Qualcomm Atheros QCA9377 Is it possible to use one of these two cards, or do I need to buy a new card? I'm looking at the Dell DW 1520 BCM94322HM8L and the Azure Wave AZ-NB290 BCM943225HMB at the moment.
  6. Hello, I've brought Atheros AR5B95 lately and I tried to configure the wifi to work but with no hope! Ive installed many kexts and with no luck ! so far I got the Card to be shown but when I hit Turn on Wi-Fi nothing happens! tried to remove the card , the configure for the wifi disappeared Guides shown on the internet shows that the wifi will work after installing the required kexts only any help?!
  7. Hello on my motherboard msi z97a gaming 9 ack, i find with aide64 that my wifi module use the id vendor 0x168c and id product 0x003e ans seems to match with the Atheros QCA61x4, so someone have a link, kexts, tutorials for making the wifi work ? thank you.
  8. Hello! Thanks to anyone who is kind enough to reply to this! Let me explain my problem. I previously had installed Windows 8.1 on my ASUS K53E laptop, then I installed Windows 10, shortly after that I installed OS X Yosemite using Uni .-. Beast . The display resolution in the recovery mode of OS X (used to install the OS on a mac usually) was flawless (same resolution as normal) which is a surprise because on my other computer that I made a Hackintosh, the resolution was terrible in recovery. Anyhow I went through with setup and note that there was a "Customize" button but it only included "OS X System and Essentials". So I decided that i wouldn't mess with those and about 30 minutes later OS X 10.10.4 was installed! I clicked continue a few times and then it asked for my type of internet connection. I tried to click Wi-Fi but it was greyed out so I couldn't. I clicked the last option "My Computer Doesn't Connect to Internet". I got to the desktop thinking "Hooray only one medium problem". I tried to connect to internet, didn't work. I tried going into settings and then connecting to internet, didn't work. On another computer I downloaded Multi .-. Beast and installed an Atheros Driver, didn't work. So I am contacting you all to find the perfect .kext file for my Hackintosh. SHORT INFO I need a .kext file for an Atheros AR9285 Wi-Fi card for OS X on an ASUS K53E. Thanks to you all!
  9. Maybe this isn't a topic for the New Users Lounge, but the thing is that I am a new user to this matter and I also CAN'T create a new topic in the developer section. So here it goes. I am trying to build a driver for my USB Wireless Card (TP-Link TL-WN722N) which isn't supported in Mac. I also found it very commented around some other websites, mainly asking for a supporting kext, then I made my mind. The 1srt question should be simple: What kind of project should I build in Xcode? One using IOKit framework (user space) or one using Kernel framework (kernel space)? I have been having troubles to get the basics fully working maybe because I am using the wrong start.
  10. Atheros AR5B125 kext

    I have successfully installed 10.6 and 10.5 on two different emachine 355 netbooks which contain the specified atheros network card. Is there any kext or any editing that will make the wifi work? I looked through IO80211Family.kext and inside its contents/plugins folder I see AirportAtheros.kext and AirportAtheros21.kext. I've included a photo of what device manager showed me about the card. Please help me, wifi makes the world go round and without it these are no use.
  11. Hello, This is a relatively new issue I have encountered in the past 24 hours and has proven to be persistent. It first presented itself under ALXEthernet.kext packaged with Rampage Dev's Haswell DMG. It was working fine for the past two weeks, full gigabit duplex mode etc. but yesterday I came across some troubling issues regarding local filesharing and Mac App Store downloads. My board is a Gigabyte Z97MX-Gaming 5 using an Atheros E2201 NIC and GTX 770 4GB OC fully enabled under Yosem 10.10.1. Appropriate DSDT patches have been applied as well as Rampage Dev's SSDT and Piker's PM SSDT. UUID and serial are all cleared and unique. Whenever I tried to write to my local AFP share (hosted by netatalk on a Linux box), it would crash the computer without any error codes or shutdown causes. Strangely I could read from the share and delete files on it without issue. This happened more often, almost always, with large transfer sizes than with smaller files. The second problem is with updating apps from the MAS. When I click "Update" it instantly crashes my computer, again without any error codes. Sometimes it lasts long enough to show the user verification login window before it crashes. As a fix I tried to work with Mieze's AtherosE2200Ethernet.kext instead of ALXEthernet. The version on the forums here did not work with my board; I had to recompile it under Yosemite build environments and then it worked. I have this copy of the kext for anyone who requests me for it, and it's completely Mieze's work as all I did was switch SDK from 10.8 to 10.10. This kext solved the AFP issues; I was able to copy a full 8GB file from local storage to AFP share. However, the MAS update crash issue remains. What's even more baffling is the fact that there is no coherent error code associated with the crash. I'm not sure if this is caused by Atheros ethernet, but I do remember encountering a similar issue with the AppleIntelE1000e.kext with my old build, especially with the AFP shares, and that's why I'm posting under here. System Information and IOReg both show the E2201 as fully recognized and enabled under both ALXEthernet and AtherosE2200Ethernet. Can anyone here help me out? Thanks.

  13. AtherosE2200Ethernet

    Version 2.2.2

    14,691 downloads

    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 is implemented but untested as I have no need for it. The driver is published under GPLv2.
  14. Edit: Updated to Beta 4 just fine, BTW I love this board! It takes a bit of work to get going, but the GA-Z97MX Gaming 5 is a wonderful board for your own, bulkier version of the iMac. Indeed, I just taped mine to the back of my Cinema Display and I can't see the difference. From the front, at least. It's not perfect, at least not yet. I have issues with kernel panics at boot (related to kernel cache and/or patching—I welcome any thoughts or suggestions). I'm not sure if I can fully utilize Apple's online services. And perhaps most importantly for the novice, Yosemite throws in some instability issues and graphical glitches (I didn't experience them in Mavericks). It's not the easiest or most welcoming build and will require patience. But if you can stomach those things it's a superb choice of quality and features. Let's just hope we get full support and stability when Yosemite is released, and that OS X will see official 9-series chipset support before Apple switches everything to ARM or some craziness. The Specs Haswell Core i5 3.5 Ghz CPU 16 GB Corsair 1866 Mhz RAM GeForce 760 MSI ITX Gaming GPU The Features Z97 chipset (As of writing, not used in any Mac but seems to work like a Z87) ALC1150 audio with swappable op-amp Atheros Killer E2201 (I think) gigabit networking 6 SATA III ports, a SATA Express port and I think an M.2 port as well My UEFI BIOS Settings Load optimized defaults (unless you really know what you're doing) XMP #1 Enabled (enabling my 1866 RAM) All boot options set to UEFI or UEFI Only Optional: Enable ErP, ASPM and other features if desired, but only after you've successfully installed and booted (save yourself the headache ) None of what follows is my original work, so I'll be sure to credit the source and provide relevant links. Preparation Obtain the latest version of Clover, the wonderful UEFI boot loader that makes the rest possible. Follow the directions in any Yosemite guide to prepare a USB drive for installation. Install Clover to that drive, following the "For UEFI Motherboards" instructions. Use my config.plist.zip, or take care creating or modifying your own. Store Mieze's superb AtherosE2200Ethernet.kext, toleda's clever CloverALC script, rampagedev's SSDT and of course FakeSMC.kext from HWSensors on your drive. You'll recall the last from the Yosemite guide, no doubt! Build and boot your machine to UEFI/BIOS, and configure your settings (note mine above). Boot your USB drive to the OS X Installer. Refer to Clover's documentation on fixes and kernel boot options if you're having trouble. Post-Installation Installation should run without issue. I recommend partitioning your drive with Disk Utility first, using GPT. After installation, feel free to reboot. Keeping your installer USB attached should allow you to boot your newly installed OS, but... ... You'll need to install Clover on the system drive, so be sure to do so and remember to include your FakeSMC and netwokring kexts for injection. toleda's script should take care of everything for you regarding audio, except he currently requires a manual patch for this particular CODEC. It isn't hard, and the necessary patch is in my config.plist.zip. And you're done! Or at least you're as far as I am . Enjoy.! Troubleshooting I still get kernel panics that I cannot attribute to any particular source (likely audio—it was a pain to get working in Yosemite for me). Sometimes networking doesn't come up. Don't even ask me about Messages, "Convection" or whatever new Apple services are coming out. No guarantees that this build will be easy or worth your time, but I sure enjoyed getting it running. That said, a few considerations for troubleshooting: I start by trying to Safe Boot (hit spacebar in Clover with proper OS selected). Does that work? If not, where are you getting stuck? Check your kernel boot options and other Clover settings, and make sure your kexts are present and in the appropriate directory on your boot drive. Can't get audio to work? I often have to rebuild the kernel cache then reboot. sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions sudo kextcache -Boot -U / Networking is pretty solid thanks to Mieze's kext. But I do sometimes have issues that a reboot or reloading of the kext seems to resolve. Go figure.

    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.
  16. Hi, I have a TL-WDN4800 wifi card (PCIe) with Atheros chipset and a usb CSR 4.0 bluetooth dongle (LMP 0x6) but I don't have the option to enable Handoff in system prefs. Is there some tweak/plist edit possible to enable it or do I need to change hardware? Please advice. Thanks, BiTRiP
  17. i am using mac os x Mountain lion with win 8.1 dual boot...my ethernet not showing/working at all...and i m totally new in mac....i need ethernet Atheros AR8152 driver for OS X ML...
  18. Hi guys, I have attached my screenshot of my Wifi Whitelist here. I can only these wifi cards. I am currently using CLOVER efi as my boot loader. I was wondering that, lets say, I use one of the cards mentioned in the title of this thread as a replacement to my current intel centrino 1030n, can I get it to work using the fake-id within clover? I managed to even spoof my intel card into being recognised as a broadcom card but of course it won't work because there are no drivers for intel cards. However in case of broadcom tthere is support. Can I spoof a 4727 to work as a 4233 or other working bcm cards using clover? anyone with any insight on this, please help me out.
  19. Atheros Wifi on N5110

    I have followed the following article: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/top...nspiron-n5110/ Everything worked perfect except WIFI. Atheros Wifi is installed but it does not detect any of the wireless connection. I have many of the wireless access point working in the surrounding and working fine on windows. I have tried following: Replacing different DSDT.aml from google- no use. Adding anther hardware USB wifi card - no use Any help would be appreciated.
  20. I saw the TP-Link TL-WDN4800 was supported for OS X so I bought it but couldn't get 5GHz to work (it's my only 5GHz client right now and in an apartment, 5GHz is awesome...for the time being). I checked the console and noticed that the off-channel scans only do 1-13, 36-60. So it misses if your router defaults to one of the higher channels. Any idea why that is? Does the AR93x driver not support those channels (on a real Mac)? Does the scan just have a bug? It's also curious that the scan does 12/13, which aren't supposed to be used in North America. It almost seems like the country configuration is just off: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_WLAN_channels Israel? Singapore? China? Anyone know if there is some locale setting that the wlan driver is getting? I'm interested in diving into this issue a bit more because I'm a developer for some of the WiFi components in Windows and look at similar issues to this every day at work.
  21. Kext for Atheros

    Hey guys I need some help. I have an Atheros AR9485WB-EG wifi card. I am having trouble getting Wifi to work. I tried a kext meant for AR9485 but it didn't work. If somebody could find me a kext that might work that would be great. Trust me I have done lots of reading and searching. If a Kext does not exist I have another solution. If somebody has an AR9485 pleased dump your ROM. Maybe I can flash that onto my chip and use the kext for that card?
  22. Atheros 9285

    My Atheros 9285 (ID 0x2b) used to work only with a DSDT patch until 10.8.4, but stopped working in 10.9 DP, I had to edit the Info.plist of AirPortAtheros40 or use an injector kext. I was able to fix it using only DSDT patch again by injecting the properties name, IOName and compatible (I'm not sure all 3 are necessary, will test later) Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) { Store (Package (0x12) { "AAPL,slot-name", Buffer (0x08) { "AirPort" }, "device-id", Unicode ("*"), "device_type", Buffer (0x08) { "AirPort" }, "model", Buffer (0x33) { "Atheros 9285 802.11 b/g/n Wireless Network Adapter" }, "subsystem-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x8F, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 }, "subsystem-vendor-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x6B, 0x10, 0x00, 0x00 }, "compatible", Buffer (0x0B) { "pci168c,2a" }, "IOName", Buffer (0x0B) { "pci168c,2a" }, "name", Buffer (0x0B) { "pci168c,2a" } }, Local0) DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0)) Return (Local0) } Thanks to nyolc8 for the tip in this topic http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/289791-fixed-by-dsdt-edit-10c-temps-500rpm-fans/?do=findComment&comment=1923734
  23. Hi, all... My Eee PC's Wifi broke recently, after testing sleep. Airport says "no airport card installed" or something like that... Install method: iAtkos S3 V2 AsereBLN bootloader, Voodoo TSC, VoodooHDA, atherosfix.pkg; netbookinstaller 0.8.4 RC1 Charmelon NBI, General Extensions Do I need a diffrent kext?
  24. Hello everyone, A few days ago I managed to install iAtkos s3 v2 on my Acer Aspire One 722. The Snow Leopard install is working wonderfully, but I'm running into problems regarding the installation of kexts for the computer's ethernet. I've tracked down a kext for my Atheros ethernet card (the L1 iAts kext found here. http://code.google.com/p/iats/), but I'm having difficulty installing it. I've tried installing this kext both with KextHelper b7 and by manually dropping it into the System/Library/Extensions folder (and repairing the installation afterwards), but with no success. Another forum regarding a SL install on an Aspire One 722 confirmed that Ethernet works with this specific kext, so I know that its the right one for my computer. Could anyone please provide advice on what I'm doing wrong and perhaps provide instruction on how to install this specific kext? I'm really pretty clueless at this point. Thanks.
  25. Atheros 5005G/AR2413 in ML

    Hello! I have a Belkin F5D7000 v.5100 wireless G PCI card. The device/vendor ID is 168c,1a. I've added my device ID in IO80211Family.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AtherosAirPort40.kext/Content/Info.plist and tried various other kexts around the Internet but nothing will allow Mountain Lion to detect the card. I have an Asus P8Z77-V LK mobo and did a DSDT-less installation. What else can I try to get this card detected? Edit: I installed the AtherosFix.kext that's floating around, I've now got the wifi icon in the top right, but it says "Wifi: no hardware detected" and wifi does not show up in System Preferences -> Network.
