Hi folks,

 

I have been screwing around with OSx86 for quite some time now and have successfully installed different "distributions" from 10.4.8 up to 10.5.5... but I always encounter one BIG problem: my WiFi doesn't work!!! :-(

 

I have a ThinkPad R40 with built-in (MiniPCI) Atheros AR5001X Wireless Network Adapter. Its vendor id is "168c" and its device id is "12". I tried so many ways to get it working, but everything I tried, didnt work... :-(

 

Who is able to supply me some experience, hints, help? I would be VERY happy and thankful if I could somehow manage to get this card working.

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Chris

Well, my id is 1c, but I managed to get it working, almost.

I have a patched version of IO80211Family right here:

IO80211Family.kext.tar.gz

But you will also need KisMAC 2.9.9 to stumble upon the networks. Then you can connect to whichever network you please and be online! ;)

 

P.S. If you have Snow Leopard, I suggest you use the latest version of KisMAC.
