  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Hello, I recently built a hackintosh and with it, bought a TP-Link TL-WDN400 which (according to Tonymacx86 users) should work OOB. I've got it working with no problems whatsoever, but the speeds seem throttled and I can't seem to find a way to fix this. Have others experienced the same problems? On my Hackintosh I get 9.51mbps down while I get 16.04mbps down on my MacBook which is sitting right beside my Hackintosh. (Hackintosh) (MacBook) I'm using a GIGABYTE Z77X-UP5 TH Motherboard, Intel i5-3570k processor. Thank you!
  4. Update: Now running Mojave! Thanks to mojave2core! Yeah Still using C2D in 2019! Inserted a nice and cheap GT710 that is not relying on nVidias Webdrivers and runs OOB under Mojave. Nice, seeing High Sierra running on this old but capable system! It rocks with a new ASUS GT1030 Config: Gigabyte EP43-DS3L Core2Quad Q9300 6 GB DDR2 RAM Asus GT1030 2GB Sandisk SSD 128GB TP-Link AC1200 Wifi USB Inateck KT4006 USB 3.0 PCIe (No boot) SMBIOS: iMac14,1 Clover: 4297 4360 A good deal of DSDT editing was necessary to get this machine to boot High Sierra but finally it works flawlessly, even sleep and wake! You NEED to have the DSDT put in place for installation because otherwise macOS doesn't recognize the SATA ports. There are a few important BIOS settings: SATA hast to be set to AHCI and "native" and HPET has to be run "64-bit", I'd recommend to disable IDE and the serial and parallel port. For the GT1030 nVidia Webdrivers are needed, have to boot with nv_disable=1 until you have them installed. You have to install Clover in legacy mode because this old fella does not support UEFI. Only downside: The so often recommended Inateck USB-card isn't recognized by BIOS, so you cannot boot from it. It works perfectly within macOS though, have the ac-Wifi connected to it. config.plist.zip DSDT.aml.zip
  5. My TP-Link WDN4800 wireless adapter (PCI-E) has been suffering constant disconnectivity starting yesterday. It doesn't seem to let me load webpages however it still states that a connection is active in the AirPort menu on the menu bar. When I boot into OS X, it says that there's no internet connection. At these times I have to turn off the WiFi and turn it back on again, and it's getting tedious. I don't know what has caused it to even do this. I don't tamper with network settings once they've been configured. It was working for some time on 10.9.4, so I don't think that would be the issue. This isn't an issue with the adapter, either; I use Windows 8.1 on the same machine and it maintains a connection. When testing my Yosemite install, it doesn't appear to want to make a connection to the Internet. It shows a connection but doesn't actually let me visit websites. Specs: Wireless adapter: TP-Link WDN4800 (Connectivity via PCI-E) Motherboard: Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H OS Affected: OS X Mavericks 10.9.4 I don't know what else there is to add, but if need be I'll add more specs. EDIT: The connection appears to have stabilised after a check of the PCI-E slot, the device and the antennae, however at every boot-up it shows "Alert: No Internet Connection" and I have to disable the WiFi and re-enable it to bring the connection back. I have tried removing relevant plists to rewrite them however this doesn't fix the issue. I have also tried updating my bootloader (Clover EFI). I've even renewed my DHCP lease. EDIT 2: Nope! Still the same thing. I'm getting angry now. I very, very, very highly doubt it's a hardware failure as if it was, I'm sure Windows would also have trouble with it.
  6. Run OS X El Capitan on a Dell Latitude E6320 This tutorial will describe the steps to install OS X El Capitan on a Dell Latitude E6320 i5 2520M. If you find any mistakes or have something to improve then please send me a PM and i will update the tutorial. A special thanks goes to Brian from Tech Erra, Jake Lo from OSX Latitude.com and Morpheousman for using parts of their tutorial I am from The Netherlands so sorry for my bad English. 1. Credits/Sources Everything OSx86-related is a collaborative effort amongst people who enjoy doing these things, as well as those of us who enjoy tweaking and experimenting with things. Below are a list of sources used to compile this guide: Tech Erra OSX86 Wiki InsanelyMac Forum member Jake Lo from OSX Latitude.com for helping me out with installing Morpheousman and Polyzargon from Insanelymac who helping me with my other topics. (Dell 780) MacPeet, Chris1111 and all other forum members who helping out the community. 2. Requirements Here are the requirements: A Dell Latitude E6320 i5 2520M – This is necessary to install OS X El Capitan for this tutorial A copy of Mac OS X – This can be in the form of an existing hackintosh, a virtual machine within Windows or Linux, or even a regular Mac. If you don’t have any of these things, then find someone who can help you out for a while. I prefer using a hackintosh with OS X Yosemite. Using an already working copy of Mac OS X either in a VM or a native hackintosh install is HIGHLY recommended. A 8GB USB flash drive (or larger) – We’ll be copying the files to the drive appropriately, so make sure that you have a flash drive with enough storage space (8GB or larger). A copy of OS X El Capitan – The method used by this guide requires that you have a copy of the OS X El Capitan Installation app, wich is available for free from the Mac App Store. 30-60 minutes of time – Depending on how tech-savvy you are, this may be quick, or it may take a while. An SSD or HDD to install 10.9 to – For me, I used a 250GB partition to install 10.9 to. An Wireless N Nano USB Adaptor – For use with wifi Highly recommended. I use a TP-LINK TL-WN725N adaptor. E6320.zip – This ZIP file contains everything that you need to get your flash drive properly prepared. 3. My Specs My installation was successfully done on an Dell Latitude E6320 i5 2520M Laptop computer with the following specs. NOTE: A Wireless N Nano USB Adaptor is recommended to use the full potential of OS Mavericks because the on board wifi doesn't work. - Intel Core i5-2520M @ 2.5GHz, 3MB cache, Dual Core - 4GB DDR3 1333Mhz RAM - Western Digital 250GB HDD - INTEL HD3000 Video - Intel 825xx onboard network - Bluetooth radio onboard (works OOB) - IDT 92HDxxx HD audio onboard - TL-WN725N Wireless N Nano USB Adaptor - Apple Magic Trackpad (only @home) - Apple Wireless Keyboard US (only @home) - Apple Magic Mouse 4. Download OS X El Capitan Start OS X Yosemite on a exsisting Mac or Hackintosh, to prepare your USB Flash drive. Make sure to backup the files that are already on your USB Flash drive thru disk Utility in Mac OS X. Open Mac App Store. Login with your Apple ID. Download OS X El Capitan Done! The application INSTALL OS X El Capitan will appear in /Applications. 5. Prepare Bootable USB Installer Now, we need to prepare the USB Drive so that it will properly bootup on your PC. I recommend using Chris1111'S app for creating your USB Installer. It is a great timesaver! Download App Here[/url Follow the instructions in the first Post for creating USB Installer. Select Installer OS X El Capitan and Install in ESP (see image below) Select Install. This step may take some time, good time to get a drink. After App is finished, you will see a EFI Partition of USB installer on your desktop. Open EFI Partition, then open EFI folder, copy and paste the Clover folder from the zip file, to the EFI folder, choose replace folder. Download the latest version of Clover Bootloader and copy it to the root of your USB installer. USB Installer is Done! 6. Bios Settings Dell Latitude E6320 Before we boot from the Dell Latitude we need to optimize the bios for OS X El Capitan. Start your Dell Latitude and press F2 to get into the Bios. In the main screen click on "Load Defaults", the bios will be reset to default settings. Go to General - Boot Sequence and choose on the right for USB Device and click the up arrow so that the USB Device is on top, click on apply to make the setting. Go then to System Configuration - SATA Operation and choose on the right for AHCI click again on apply and choose exit, now the Bios is ready for installing OS X El Capitan. 7. Installing OS X El Capitan from your USB drive Time for the fun stuff! We’ll now boot from your USB drive and install OS X El Capitan onto the Hard Drive. Using a USB 4G flash drive will help things out quite a bit. Power on unit while tapping F12 Key to choose boot device, select USB device. When Clover boot screen is visible, choose boot "Mac OS X from El Capitan USB Installer". The system will then boot into OS X installer For a new installation of OS X, you must erase and format the destination drive according to the following steps before continuing. If you are upgrading from Lion, Mountain Lion, Mavericks or Yosemite and you want to keep your files and apps, skip steps a-j. A. Choose Disk Utility B. Highlight your target drive for El Capitan installation in the left column. C. Click Partition tab D. Click Current and choose 1Partition E. Click Options.... F. Choose GUID Partition Table. G. Under name: Type El Capitan (you can change it later if desired). H. Under Format: Choose Mac OS Extended (Journaled). I. Click Apply the Partition. J. Close Disk Utility. When the installer asks you where to install, choose El Capitan Hard Drive. Upon completion, system will restart a 1st time. Press F12 key to choose the boot device. When the Clover Boot screen is visible, Choose your El Capitan Hard Drive. You will eventually get to the setup screens for OS X El Capitan. Go through the setup process to setup OS X El Capitan. Choose at "How do i connect to the internet " ..."My Computer Does Not Connect to the Internet", we will fix this later, go further with the setup process. The setup process will take about 3 minutes. Done! 8. Adjust some settings in OS X 10.11 Once in 10.11 go to finder – preferences – General and choose in "show these items on the desktop" for Hard Disk External Disk CD Go also to System Preferences – Security& Privacy click on the lock icon in the lower left corner and type your password. Choose by “Allow applications downloaded from": click on "Anywhere" Close system preferences. 9. Installing The Clover Bootloader on Your Hackintosh The following instructions may appear a bit oversimplified, but we are trying to keep it simple for first-time Clover Bootloaders users. Copy the Clover Installer from the root of your El Capitan USB Installer to your desktop. Open Clover Package installer. Hit Continue, Continue, Change Install Location... Choose your HD, now called El Capitan and press Continue (see images below) Hit Customize and install clover with the following Custom Install settings (see images below) After installation of the Clover Bootloader, the EFI Partition of your El Capitan Hard Drive should be mounted on your desktop. Copy the Clover folder from the zip file into your El Capitan EFI Partition > EFI Folder. Make sure to choose to Replace the Clover folder. In Tools Folder of the zip file, Open Clover Configurator. Click File, Open File and select config.plist in EFI/EFI/Clover. Click on SMBIOS in left side pane and create your new SMBIOS (iMac 8.1) with Random Serial Number. Close Clover Configurator and save changes. Finished! Now remove the USB Installer and reboot into OS X El Capitan. 10. Install Wlan driver for the TL-WN725N The wireless lan on the Dell E6320 doesn’t work, therefore I use a Wireless N USB Nano Adaptor from TP-LINK. The software is straight forward and installs without problems, the only thing is that after login the wireless app starts up and you have must close it every time, therefore I have made a script to launch the program after login and close it after 5 seconds. For installing the driver go to the folder “E6320 – Wlan_TP-LINK”. Launch the Installer.pkg and install the software, after install you will get the message to restart. Choose restart to restart you laptop. After restart the software will start the Wireless App. Choose you desired network and add it to your profile. Now we can install the login script. Go to “System Preferences – Users & Groups”, go to tab Login Items. Choose the + sign and browse to the folder “Install_E6320 - Wlan_TP-LINK” and choose “Wireless App2”. Close System Preferences. 11. iMessage & FaceTime Fix You will need MLB and Rom numbers from a legit Mac device that is onthe mac server. Run iMessage debug on a iMac, Macbook, etc and make a copy and paste of the Terminal output. Open Clover Configurator. Mount EFI Partition. Import config.plist from EFI/EFI/Clover (File , import configuration, browse to config.plist and select). In Clover Configurator Click on RT Variables, Enter Rom and MLB Values from iMessage output from valid iMac device. Save changes to config.plist. Reboot, Sign into iMessage iMessage and FacTime should now both be working. 12. What's working? Just about everything. 13. Finished! You’ve successfully installed OS X El Capitan onto your Dell Latitude E6320. TROUBLESHOOTING 14.

  7. I have Speedtest.net Mini running in my local network. I find that the download speed of TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 N900 in OS X 10.8.2 is significantly lower than in Windows 7. In OS X, I get about 30 Mbps compared to 60+ Mbps in Windows. The upload speeds are, however, very comparable. This is the same machine dual-booting into two OS's. Are there any tips on how to tweak/troubleshoot this card in OS X? It's always been advertised as plug 'n play but how do I know if I have the best driver for it? Please advise.

  9. ciao,avrei bisogno di una mano. ho installato ideneb v1.3 (mac os x leopard 10.5.5) tutto bene le uniche 2 cose che non funzionano sono la scheda video asus eah3650 (che è un ati radeon hd 3650 agp) che non viene riconosciuta e la chiavetta usb che viene rilevata tra le periferiche usb ma non so come farla funzionare per prendere il wifi. allora questo è quello che ho fatto: -ricercato per un paio di giorni le risposte sul forum ma ho provato di tutto e non sono riuscito a risolvere nulla. -la risoluzione mi va in automatico a 1000x768 ma sono riuscito a forzarla a 1600x1200 -adesso ho reinstallato il sistema ex novo perchè ogni volta che installo un kext per la scheda video non riesco piu a fare il boot causa black screen. non c'è un modo per provare kext senza rischiare di dover reinstallare ogni volta tutto? -con alcuni kext sono risucito a far riconoscere la scheda come un ati radeon hd 3600 256mb (mentre la mia scheda è una 3650 e ha 512mb ddr2) e qe ci disabilitati , qualsiasi aiuto è ben accetto grazie a tutti.
